Chapter Summary

De regimine principum written by Giles of Rome around 1279 met with considerable success to a wide readership among the recommended reading for the education of the young prince Philip the Fair. The Prince was expected to become a good Christian, and a wise and cultivated king. Giles of Rome divided his treatise in three books by the Aristotelian division of practical philosophy. The first book, based on morality, examines how man should govern himself and what he has to do with his own virtues in learning to master his passions. The second book deals with economy and explores how the prince should rule his wife, children and servants. The third book taught the prince how to rule his kingdom, in peacetime and wartime. The original text of the chapter is in French.
