Transcript of Niccolò Machiavelli

Life Fun Facts 3 Important Accomplishments Niccolo was born in Florence, Italy on May 3, 1469. The cause of his death is unknown. He died on June 21, 1527. He was about 58 years of age. He was buried in Santa Croce Church in Florence, Italy. He was interested in politics, military, theory, and history. One fun fact is the rumor that Niccolo faked his death even though there is no proof to prove whether he did it or not. Some people also say that he was called "The Devil's partner in crime" and "Murderous Machiavel". One of his accomplishments was being appointed clerk in the second chancery of the commune under his old master. Machiavelli's first assignment was on a mission to the court of Louis XII of France to appease the French leader after a disaster in their alliance against Pisa. Niccolo completed this mission and many others. He is best known for the book, The Prince. The Prince summarizes how, in Machiavelli's opinion, a prince should act in order to be a good ruler. It is important because it shows how things changed in Medieval times from all the emphasis being on God to a society more focused on the individual (humanism). The importance of one's self and one's own skills increased during Machiavelli's time. Machiavelli's book focused on knowing when to use your morals and when to put them aside so you can keep your position in power.
