The Egyptian Assassins were the Brotherhood of Assassins located in Egypt, one of the few Brotherhoods to have existed for over a thousand years.
On 12 August 30 BCE, the Egyptian Assassin Amunet infiltrated the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra's palace, and killed her with a venomous asp.
In 1257, Darim Ibn-La'Ahad, son of the Mentor of the Levantine Assassins, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, moved to Alexandria after the Levantine Assassins were disbanded. Darim joined the widow of his deceased brother and her children, which led to their bloodline integrating into the Egyptian Assassins.
By 1511, the Egyptian Assassins were under the leadership of their Mentor Iskender, a descendant of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad. He was captured to be executed that year, but was saved by Ottoman Assassins sent from Constantinople by the Mentor of the Italian Assassins, Ezio Auditore da Firenze.
