Niccolò Machiavelli was born in 1469 in Italy. Even though he faced incarceration in his early life due to political reasons, Niccolo managed to make his ideas count in the modern world. Niccolò Machiavelli’s inclusion in the list of top evil genius people has been a point of debate for a long time. His inclusion in the list is due to a book he published “The Prince” on political science. He wrote this book after thorough research on Roman history. In this book, he discussed methods that he had researched to have complete hold over the public even if extreme measures are to be used by the authorities. Some people regard him as the father of political theory, whereas, others regard his ideas as cruel, ruthless and not appropriate.
