2) Niccolo Machiavelli was a Florentine who was active in politics in that Italian city-state, where bloodshed and destruction were often part of the political process.

This he can do in two ways, by practice or by study.” Select one world historical personality from the list provided and demonstrate how this individual ruled “by any means necessary.” Your research and final essay must elaborate upon five respective methods by which the individual ruled and clearly demonstrate/explain those means in five body paragraphs.
