The Prince

‘The Prince’ (1513) is by the Italian philosopher, politician, and writer Niccolò Machiavelli, and is regarded as his most important and influential work.

Intended as a guide for the world’s rulers, it discusses the political atmosphere of 16th-century Italy and Europe while offering a worldwide analysis of the notion of power in general.

Machiavelli details all the common features, problems, and ideas that characterise rulers from ancient to modern times, and offers radical suggestions.

This is an important work about politics and power and remains hugely influential to this day.

Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527) was an Italian philosopher, politician, and writer, whose best-known work ‘The Prince’ earned him international fame.

Regarded as the father of modern political philosophy and political science, Machiavelli wrote letters to many political and social figures of the day, engaging in a wide array of topics and suggestions.

His other influential works include ‘Discourses on the First Ten Books of Titus Livius’, which deals with the classical history of Ancient Rome.
