AC4 Experto Crede

The Experto Crede anchored in the Maroon hideout

The Experto Crede was a brig and former slave ship captained by the Assassin Adéwalé.[1]

Following the loss of his previous ship, the Victoire, and his marooning on Saint-Domingue, Adéwalé managed to seize the Experto Crede. With her, Adéwalé sought to destroy the island's local slave trade, in support of the Maroon rebellion.[1]

After the 1751 Port-au-Prince earthquake, Adéwalé sailed the Experto Crede from Haiti to the Davenport Homestead, where he got supplies for the survivors from the Colonial Assassins.[2]

Bravado 5

The Experto Crede beached

In 1758, the Experto Crede supported the French in the Siege of Louisbourg and led a swarm of fireships against the Royal Navy. However James Cook's ship, HMS Pembroke, sunk the fireships, forcing the Assassin ship to flee. These actions made Adéwalé a potential target for the Templars. Adéwalé later beached the Experto Crede in Vieille Carrière to save himself and his crew from the attacking Templars. However, he was assassinated by Shay Cormac in the village. The Experto Crede's fate remains unknown to this day.[2]


  • Adéwalé - Captain (1735 – 1758)
  • Augustin Dieufort - Quartermaster (1735 – unknown)
  • Numerous unnamed sailors


  • The name of the ship is a Latin motto meaning 'believe the expert'.
  • In its appearance in Assassin's Creed: Rogue, the Experto Crede is outfitted with the "Liberty" sails, the "Aries" figurehead and a unique wheel with small skulls carved in along the felloe. It notably has less number of cannons unlike the events of Freedom Cry
  • It is unknown what happened to the Experto Crede after the events of Bravado, though it is possible that it was captured by the Templars and was broken up.
