  • “Names like ‘Borgia’ and ‘Machiavelli’ probably mean something to you. If I told you this was a story about manipulation and palace intrigue you’d be like… why yes! Right?? It’s also about the complicated relationship between a biographer and their subject, something kinda meta that historical fiction rarely delves into.” (Cosmopolitan)
  • “Well researched with wonderfully vivid details, Bernini presents Machiavelli in all the complications of a life spent navigating political waters, learning to say the right thing or nothing at all, and more importantly, learning how to write about it all…The ultimate power, then, resides in words and those who know how to use them. Borgia and his armies fade away, but Machiavelli’s books still belong on our shelves.” (New York Journal of Books)
  • “Bernini’s engrossing historical novel follows Machiavelli’s trajectory through the corridors of power in 16th-century Italy… As the relationship between the biographer and his subject evolves, each man relies on the other to achieve his political ambitions, yet only one will succeed.” (Washington Post)

Flaptekst van de roman over Niccolò Machiavelli van Franco Bernini

This meticulously researched and brilliantly told historical novel, the first of a planned trilogy, recounts the enigmatic life of Niccolò Machiavelli, revealing the complex man behind the infamous political strategist.

October 1502. As Cesare Borgia sets out to invade the Florentine Republic, Niccolò Machiavelli is sent to spy on him and to glean details of his nefarious plan. But when Borgia asks Machiavelli to write his life story, their bond gains complexity and nuance: ultimately, they both aspire to everlasting fame and to achieve it, they need each other, for the one’s sword can only rule in eternity via the pen of the other.

Set against the backdrop of the Renaissance, rife with political intrigue and cultural flourishing, Bernini’s richly imagined novel masterfully captures a society teetering on the brink of change and revolution, as one man takes his chance at greatness, navigating the treacherous corridors of power with guile and charisma.

The Throne is a captivating reflection on ambition, morality, and the pursuit of power and influence. The novel reveals one of the most impactful and controversial minds in political history, and questions and asks to what lengths can one justifiably go to achieve greatness.
