Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli was born in and lived for Florence. He was a patriot first and last. He aspired to become and was a politician, diplomat, philosopher and writer. He was born in 1469, Florence, and died in 1527, in Florence. He could have served other masters in multiple city states in the present day Italy but he chose to serve only his homeland: Florence. He was ambitious and honest. He detested corrupt priests and devious church leaders who, in his opinion, destroyed humanity's faith in Christianity and they damaged Florence, with their treachery, deceit and hypocrisy. That stance led him to be despised by churchmen and he was declared 'satanic' by cardinals of the Catholic church. He is misunderstood and misquoted. He is quoted but 'seldom read'. He was not evil. He was honest and humane. He was a political humanist. It is time that he is restored for what he really was: a political humanist who espoused primacy of the populace, while being ruled by The honest and populace-serving Prince! This is a primer of his life and what he really said.
