Virgilio Malvezzi was a 17th-century Italian historian who was known for his historical commentaries on Roman greats such as Tacitus and Lipsius. Though perhaps his most important work was his books ‘Rolumo’ and ‘Tarquinius’, names of two of antiquity’s most iconic kings of Rome.

 

Malvezzi was highly influenced by Machiavelli whom he modeled both works after. ‘Tarquin’ specifically creates numerous arguments for the necessity of dissimulation in politics. While both works are political in nature, they, too, provide details on the history of ‘pre-Republic’ era of Rome.

 

Both works were published together in 1637 and were continually published together afterward. This 1638 English edition was translated by H Cary, published in London.
