Summary Of Chapter XV By Machiavelli

Decent Essays
In my opinion, I think that Machiavelli wrote this book as a guide to help future rulers. In chapter XV he writes, “ My intent is to write something useful to whoever understands it.” For example one of the many pieces of advice that he gives and probably the most important, is that a good prince must have a good foundation. ” In this book Machiavelli provides several examples of characteristics that a prince/ruler should and should not display. Throughout the chapters in the book Machiavelli also provides examples of rulers prior to him writing the book as well as rulers/princes that were present during his time, which display the characteristics that he writes about.
