Los consegeros de los principes.


Dizen que Chiron[1] instruyò à los hijos
De los heroas [=héoes] , como a’l diestro Aquiles
Y ansi ha de ser quien con el rey biviere.
Fiero en domar y castigar los viles
Y en lo demas propositos muy fijos
Tenga, si pareçer piadoso quiere.


1.  Chiron, the wise centaur entrusted with the education of Achilles, Aesculapius, and other noble figures. Centaurs were creatures combining the physical and mental characteristics of a man with those of a horse. They were wild and uncontrolled, and came to symbolise humanity descending to savagery. Even the civilised Chiron, the educator, retained violent potential.
