"The works of Niccolò Machiavelli, such as The Prince, were considered a guideline for the behavior of a king in Frederick the Great's age. In 1739, Frederick finished his Anti-Machiavel, an idealistic refutation of Machiavelli. It was written in French and published anonymously in 1740." --Sholem Stein
