Machiavelli’s most famous treatise, The Prince, written in 1513, was not published until five years after the author’s death in 1527. The tumultuous history of the book parallels the political turmoil that inspired Machiavelli to write it.

The Prince, addressed to Lorenzo deMedici, il Magnifico, examines the belief that the primary goal of a ruler should be to gain and keep power. Its assertion that ethical and moral considerations are not relevant to good government has engendered centuries of political and philosophical debate, and will surely continue to do so.
