I. HOW MANY KINDS OF PRINCIPALITIES THERE ARE, AND BY WHAT MEANS THEY ARE ACQUIRED All states, all powers, that have held and hold rule over men have been and are either republic s or principalities. Principalities are either heredit ary, in which the family has been long established; or they a re new. The new are either entirely new, as was Milan to Francesco Sforza, or they are, as it were, members annexed to the heredit ary state of the prince who has acquired them, as was the kingdom of Naples to that of the King of Spain. Such domin ions thu s acquired are either accusto med to live under a prince, or to live in freedom; and are acquired either by the arms of th e prince himself, or of others, or else by fortu ne or by ability. 23 of 239 The Prince
