“Never attempt to win by force what can be won by deception.”

― Niccolò Machiavelli

 

Niccolo Machiavelli is one of the most important figures in 15th– and early 16th-century Renaissance philosophy. His works helped define what has become political science. His most famous work “The Prince” has infamously coined the term ‘Machiavellianism’ regarding politics and dishonest politicians.

 

“The Discourses on Livy” is a treatise on the classical history of early Ancient Rome. While there are elements of historical fact, Machiavelli wrote this book to illustrate how a republic government should be started and managed, rather than how it was managed by the Romans. This book includes one of the earliest examples of the concepts of ‘checks and balances.’

 

Interestingly, this copy was a part of the library of Orélie-Antoine de Tounens, the infamous adventurer who proclaimed by a decree on November 17, 1860 that Araucanía and Patagonia did not depend of any other states and that a Kingdom of Araucanía and Patagonia was founded with himself as King under the name Orélie-Antoine I.

      • The Kingdom of Araucanía and Patagonia was an unrecognized state proclaimed on November 17, 1860 by a decree of Orélie-Antoine de Tounens, a French lawyer and adventurer who claimed that the regions of Araucanía and eastern Patagonia did not need to depend on any other states. He had the support of some Mapuche lonkos around a small area in Araucanía, who were engaged in a desperate armed struggle to retain their independence in the face of hostile military and economic encroachment by the governments of Chile and Argentina, who coveted the Mapuche lands for economic and political reasons.
      • Arrested on January 5, 1862 by the Chilean authorities, Antoine de Tounens was imprisoned and declared insane on September 2, 1862 by the court of Santiago and expelled to France on October 28, 1862. He later tried three times to return to Araucania to reclaim his “kingdom” without success.
