Niccolò Machiavelli - humanist, early master of the Italian language, diplomat, fiction and nonfiction writer, apparently proficient chef, and father of modern political science.
Living from 1469-1527 in Florence, Machiavelli was an accomplished Renaissance man during his lifetime. His most famous work, the influential political treatise The Prince, describes the quasi-diabolical process of ruling a state. He was arrested and tortured by the influential Medici family, though he dedicated The Prince to Lorenzo Medici. Though the Machiavellian morals described in The Prince later became one of the three dark triad personalities, he was kind of a babe.

    To be fair, Machiavelli didn’t actually believe most of the stuff in ‘The Prince’. He actually wrote it under duress...
