Guevara, Antonio de (gā-vä’rä). A Spanish historical and moral essayist; born in Viscaya, about 1490; died in 1545. His ‘Marcus Aurelius’ is a sort of ‘Cyropædia,’ and has been translated into many languages. ‘The Prince’s Time-Piece’ and ‘The First Ten Cæsars’ are manuals for the ethical guidance of youthful royalty.
