Machiavelli, known as “father of modern political theory” served as a diplomat of Italy for fourteen years. His most famous work “The Prince”, inspired many politicians all around the world. While juxtaposing the traditional way of linking political theory with moral ethics and law, Machiavelli, in The Prince differentiates between the two, where he asserts that a Prince’s actions must always be based upon the practical implication of the situation. Machiavelli, with the help of real life examples, suggests the contrasting image between the idealistic and realistic scenarios and how princes of earlier times have dealt with them.
