DO NOT POINT OUT ERRORS IN COMICS POSTED PRIOR TO INFORMATION BEING AVAILABLE

- I was originally gonna write a comic with Machiavelli's wife Marietta with Machiavelli, but turns out he didn't bring her with him to Rome.
I made up Marietta's appearance for lack of any images of her based on a cursory search.
Most people don't seem to give a shit about Machiavelli's personal life (it's harder to research since most people would rather yammer about The Prince). Hell, he had five kids and I'm still not sure what all their names are... one of them was Guido.
Well, one letter from Marietta to Machiavelli survives, but no Machiavelli to Marietta letters survive. It is paraphrased from a translation in the comic.
Marietta seems to care about Machiavelli and Machiavelli seems to care about her... but on account he's had mistresses... @_@ I can't for the life of me imagine Machiavelli as a lover-boy, but he's also written a sonnet where he seems to be saying that Cupid is out for his blood with those damn love arrows. *inelegant paraphrasing*

- Machiavelli in AC:B and AC2 stuck out to me. I'm not much of a fan of him historically, because I have never really done any kind of research on people from this era, but his character in the games was cool I thought.
Your comic always makes me laugh! It's so freaking great, but don't stress! If it's not making you happy, then don't worry about it. Life comes first. :)

- You know, it's funny, but I was thinking along the same lines yesterday. Out of nowhere, I was like- wait, okay, so we know what Machiavelli the Politician was like, but what about the man? I only found Marietta after extensive research, wikipedia somehow completely failed to mention that he even had a wife in the first place. I lost my faith in wikipedia this moment....

- Wikipedia only mentions Marietta in the timeline of Machiavelli's life.
