HistoryEdit

AC3A - Egypt

Egyptian desert

According to legends, Isis, the mother of all Egyptian gods, owned the Ankh and used it to protect the kings of Egypt from harm. After some time, Osiris, Isis' lover, passed away. Isis then used the Ankh to revive him for one night, and during this night, Horus was conceived. From there, the Ankh was left in a pyramid for 200 years, until it was taken away by Roman plunderers to their home city.[1]

Joseph, one of the founders of the twelve tribes of Israel, was sold into slavery in Egypt by his brothers as they were jealous that he had inherited the Shroud of Eden from their father. Joseph became the Pharaoh's chief minister, forgave his brothers and invited their families to live in Egypt. The Pharaoh after Joseph's death became concerned by the Hebrew population and enslaved them. Moses, a prince, eventually liberated the slaves by using a Staff of Eden and led them back to the Levant.[2]

Between 702 and 690 BCE, Shabataka ruled over Egypt using a Staff of Eden.[2]

In 30 BCE, the Assassin Amunet assassinated the Egyptian queen Cleopatra with an asp.[3]

By 1257, Darim Ibn-La'Ahad and the family of his brother Sef had moved to Alexandria.[4] The family was still present in 1511, as one of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's descendants, Iskender, had become Mentor of the Egyptian Assassins. The Mentor of the Italian Assassins, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, sent apprentices from Constantinople to prevent his execution. The Egyptian and Turkish Assassins also worked to recover Memory Seals from the destroyed library of Alexandria.[5]

In 1757, the Templar Haytham Kenway traveled to Egypt to rescue his friend Jim Holden, who had been captured in Damascus while freeing Haytham's half-sister, Jenny Kenway, from slavery. Haytham discovered Holden at the Abou Gerbe monastery on Mount Ghebel Eter, where Coptic priests turned boys into eunuchs. Holden had already been castrated: enraged, Haytham burned the monastery and killed the priests, before carrying his friend to safety.[6]

On December 9, 2012, William Miles, the de facto leader of the worldwide Assassin Order, went to Cairo to find the third and final power source for the Grand Temple, which was on display in a museum in the city. Despite his attempts to go unnoticed, the Templars discovered his location and captured him. After that, they sent William and the artifact to Abstergo Industries' facility in Rome, Italy.[7][8]
