German to English translations [PRO] Social Sciences - History / Machiavelli's works
German term or phrase:Herrschaftsbild
Now we're talking about Machiavelli, and I'm not sure whether this means that his work actually influenced the rulers of the time, or if it influenced our view of the rulers of the time. Anyone know?
"„il Principe“ prägt maßgeblich das europäische Herrschaftsbild der Spätrenaissance."
Explanation: While his writings were certainly influential at the time, I'd say your sentence refers to the influence that The Prince still has on modern-day leaders. Have a look at the Wikipedia article and what it has to say about The Prince.
