The Monument

The Monument to the Great Fire of London, often simply referred to as the Monument, is a doric column located in the City of London. It was built to commemorate the Great Fire of London.

The Monument was erected on the site of St. Margaret, the first of many churches to be consumed by the fire. Designed by renowned architect Christopher Wren, the landmark was built between 1671 and 1677.

Wren had considered many ideas for the sculpture that would rest atop the Monument, including a statue of King Charles II, a woman wielding a sword, and a phoenix triumphantly rising from the flames. Eventually, however, he settled for a brass orb.

Many years later, in 1868, the Assassin Evie Frye ascended the Monument, following a trail of clues left behind by Master Assassin Edward Kenway. Upon inserting a disk at the very top, an image was revealed that led Evie to conclude Edward had hidden something at St. Paul's Cathedral.
