Leon Trotsky (7 November 1879 – 21 August 1940), born Lev Davidovich Bronstein, was a Marxist revolutionary and theorist, a Soviet politician, and the founder of the Red Army. Trotsky's ideas formed the basis of Trotskyism, a major school of Marxism.
He was also a good friend of Nikolai Orelov and was aware of the war between the Templars and the Assassins but was not part of either order. However, in September 1918, during the Kazan Operation, when Nikolai asked Leon to help him smuggle Anastasia Nikolaevna to Moscow, Trotsky sold his friend to the Templars for the sake of the Revolution, deeming the surviving princess to be too dangerous as a symbol to be left alive.
