Ruthless Italian political philosopher who wrote "The Prince" in the early 1500s, which is considered his masterpiece.
He commanded Florence's militia from 1503 until 1506, although he distrusted his officers.
His "The Prince" influenced the Medici Pope Clement VII after it was finally published in 1532, five years after he died; his book also gave rise to the derogatory term, Machiavellianism.
His parents were named Bernardo di Niccolo Machiavelli and Barolomea di Stefano Nelli.
He was a political philospher much like Karl Marx.
