We theoretically show the possibility to induce magnetic ordering in non-magnetic one-dimensional systems of strongly interacting electrons hopping on a tight-binding lattice. Our analysis is provided within the framework of the t1-t2 Hubbard Model, assuming non-zero second neighbor hopping rate. It is shown that a high-frequency electric field can be exploited to induce artificial ferromagnetism and eventually control anti-ferromagnetic/ferromagnetic phase transition. Our analysis is validated
