Chapter Summary

Valencias admonition to Philip III is based on the premise that kings ought to embody Christian virtues in their lives; they must be quite impervious to ulterior motives such as personal advantage; nor should they neglect to take action through indolence or fear. This chapter examines the writings on kingship of St Juan de vila and of Benito Arias Montano, two of the foremost influences on Pedro de Valencia. Erasmuss Education of a Christian Prince is a manual of advice on how best the prince can prepare for the duties of monarchy. Virt in politics for Machiavelli at times required that there be a distinction between the public and private faces of the Prince. The Advertencias necesarias para los reyes (Necessary Counsel for Kings) is among the writings of vila that were written for the Council of Trent (15451563).
