PL Truth SeekerHQ I wanted to ask you something. Which is… what's your name?

The title of this article is conjecture. Although canon, no official name for the subject of this article has been given.

The Acre Citadel was a huge fortress located in the southern rich district of Acre, as well as the main residence of Richard I of England during the Third Crusade.


The citadel was essentially a small town that was heavily fortified against outside attacks, with huge walls and battlements. It contained the quarters of William of Montferrat, a Templar, who governed the area whilst Richard was absent fighting the Saracens.[1]

In 1191, the Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad infiltrated the heavily guarded fortress, eliminated the archers patrolling its perimeter and then assassinated William.[1]

A couple of years later, Altaïr and Maria Thorpe met at the top of the citadel's tower, where they made love and subsequently conceived a son.[2]
