CHAPTER XXVI AN EXHORTATION TO LIBERATE ITALY FROM THE BARBARIANSDESCRIPTION OF THE METHODS ADOPTED BY THE DUKE VALENTINO WHEN MURDERINGTHE LIFE OF CASTRUCCIO CASTRACANI OF LUCCAINTRODUCTIONNicolo Machiavelli was born at Florence on 3rd May 1469. He was the second son of Bernardo di NicoloMachiavelli, a lawyer of some repute, and of Bartolommea di Stefano Nelli, his wife. Both parents were membersof the old Florentine nobility.His life falls naturally into three periods, each of which singularly enough constitutes a distinct and important era inthe history of Florence. His youth was concurrent with the greatness of Florence as an Italian power under theguidance of Lorenzo de' Medici, Il Magnifico. The downfall of the Medici in Florence occurred in 1494, in whichyear Machiavelli entered the public service. During his official career Florence was free under the government of aRepublic, which lasted until 1512, when the Medici returned to power, and Machiavelli lost his office. The Mediciagain ruled Florence from 1512 until 1527, when they were once more driven out. This was the period of Machiavelli's literary activity and increasing influence; but he died, within a few weeks of the expulsion of theMedici, on 22nd June 1527, in his fifty-eighth year, without having regained office.YOUTH  Aet. 1-251469-94
