minus 500 years =

December 11, 1513

I was going to say Galileo http://www.biography.com/people/galileo-9305220 but I think you probably mean a letter from Machiavelli --

Niccolo Machiavelli to Francesco Vettori, Florence, December 10, 1513

Best regards

Close enough, I guess.

It was in that letter that Machiavelli announced that he had just finished 'The Prince' that same day, which one needs to read to understand the term 'Machiavellian'.

A Prince in those days could be somewhat bloody and tended to have a purple reign.

I think he's back to being known as Prince now. Someone can correct me but I think he is over that phase of his career.
