The legend of Cincinnatus's selfless service for his country has continued to inspire admiration, including by Niccolò Machiavelli .  It has also been invoked to honor other political leaders, notably George Washington . Washington's relinquishing of control of the Continental Army , refusal to consider establishing a monarchy or assuming monarchical powers, and voluntary retirement after two terms as president to return to his farm at Mount Vernon have made allusions to Cincinnatus common in historical  and literary [d] treatments of the era.
