"One day, when all this is over, I will invite you to Paris to stay with me and my family. She is the most beautiful city in all the world, Connor, full of art and culture, women and wine."
―Marquis de Lafayette, 1778.[src]
ACU Paris


Paris is the capital and largest city of France.

On 18 March 1314, Pope Clement V, influenced by the Assassin Order, had Jacques de Molay, the Grand Master of the Templar Order, burned at the stake in the city. His death marked the disbanding of Knights Templar, and their conversion into an organization operating in secret.

During the Renaissance, France was ruled by King Louis XII, though he left the kingdom under the charge of his courtiers, who were secretly allied with the Templars. A group of Italian Assassins, sent by their MentorEzio Auditore da Firenze, traveled to Paris to battle that Templar influence.[1]

In 1527, Giovanni Borgia and Maria Amiel traveled to the Louvre in order to find the second half of "the Book", which had been used by Nicolas Flamel to turn lead into gold. Afterwards, they visited the Flamel tomb in Paris' Holy Innocents' Cemetery, but only found it devoid of bodies, or any sign of the Book.[2]

Sometime towards the end of the 19th century, Samuel Liddell Mathers, accompanied by the disembodied being of William Robert Woodman, met one of the Secret Chiefs in Paris. The Chief, who wore a ring marked with the Templar insignia, informed Mathers that his Order's partnership with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn had ended.[3]

In 2014, Eric Cooper set up an Assassin headquarters in Paris to help infiltrate a data hub for the Helix, Abstergo Entertainment's upcoming cloud-based game service.[4]
