The second season of Netflix's hit series House of Cards is set for release on February 14, for lovers of ruthlessness and sneaky power plays. The show is especially addictive because of the wicked and conniving Francis (Frank) Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey, who deftly tears up politicians and anyone else on his path to ultimate power in Washington.
Times may have changed since the 16th-century Italian politician and philosopher Machiavelli published his political treatise The Prince in 1532. But he and Frank share some similarities when it comes to their attitude to playing politics. See if you can tell their words apart!
