Shakespeare’s Richard III and Titus Andronicus draw an irony of a man’s life. Both Titus and Richard cause their own downfalls and destructions by trying to destroy the lives of the others. Shakespeare’s Richard III and Titus Andronicus are similar in a way that they both illustrate a tragedy of a man, family, and a country. Also, they both do not hesitate to murder people in order to accomplish their goals. However, since their vicious actions are to succeed, they are justified by Machiavelli’s Prince. Machiavelli sets several principles to become an eminent ruler. He argues a man can murder as many people as he wants when it is necessary to be in a position of power. Richard III makes a use of Machiavelli’s set of principles very well. His plan to become King reflects Machiavellism from the beginning to the end. Although Richard dies at the end he has gained the crown that he craves for the entire play as well as two women as his wives.
