Who was Bernardo di Niccolò Machiavelli?

Bernardo di Niccolò Machiavelli was a citizen of Florence and father to Niccolò Machiavelli. A Doctor of Law, debts inherited from his father and uncles limited his career and prevented him from joining the legal guild. He is known independently for his diary or Libro di Ricordi, chronicling the years 1474–1487. The pages, housed in the Biblioteca Riccardiana in Florence, serve as a valuable window into everyday life and culture during the time and provide the only reliable information on his famous son's early youth. Bernardo Machiavelli was married to Bartolommea di Stefano Nelli. They had four children, Primavera, Margherita, Niccolò and Totto.
