Discover The Real History Behind Every Assassinís Creed


The Assassinís Creed franchise has transported players across the globe from one historic time period to another, and if youíve been paying attention and checking your in-game database, youíve likely stumbled upon one or two facts that might come in handy on a high-school history test. While each Assassinís Creed game is heavily inspired and influenced by history, they are still works of fiction; as much as weíd like to believe it, Ezio Auditore never fought against Rodrigo and Cesare Borgia, Edward Kenway never unlocked The Observatory, and the Frye twins never fought the Templars for Londonís liberation.

If youíd like to know the facts behind the real-life settings that inspired the games, check out our ongoing Real History video series. Each entry takes a look at the city, people, architecture, and culture of a particular Assassinís Creed game. Youíll learn about the origins of the Colosseum, why the Third Crusade was fought, who Machiavelliís ďThe PrinceĒ was really about, why the Florence Cathedral went without its famous dome for more than 100 years, and so much more. New videos are still being added to the series, but in the meantime, brush up on your history with our looks at Assassinís Creed, Assassinís Creed II, Assassinís Creed Brotherhood, and Assassinís Creed Revelations.
