Document Summary

Machiavelli further elaborates how it is difficult for a prince to hold a state he has just acquired. He uses the example of alexander the great because based on his analysis, alexander acquired his land successfully on his own and that they were lost due to the ambitions of his other governors. Two different kinds of principality governing: first by a prince and servants loyal to him, or by a prince and barons, the latter group be loyal to their own bloodlines and not the prince. The first form of governing sees the prince being more popular and secure in his state because the prince is seen as the only authority. In the other form the prince is less highly regarded for there are barons who command popular authority as well. Machiavelli uses the turkish state as an example of the first governing method and france as an example of the second.
