Here's a personal speculation
I've been reading up on some death sentences throughout history, and I ran across this fragment, about King Louis the XVIth of France:


In mid-January 1793, the Convention needed to decide the king's fate. When the king was condemned to death by guillotine in a vote of 361 to 360, Le Peletier was rumored to have cast the deciding vote when he yielded to the arguments of the Duc d'Orleans in favor of death.
On 20 January 1793, the eve of the king's execution, he was assassinated in a restaurant in the Palais Royal. His murderer, Philippe Nicolas Marie de PÔris, a member of the Garde du Corps, allegedly plunged a saber that he had hidden under his cloak into Le Peletier's chest. His assassin fled to Normandy, where, on the point of being discovered, he supposedly shot himself in the head. Other sources claim the real murderer fled to England where he died years later.
His daughter Suzanne, 11 years old at his death, became a national celebrity. She was officially adopted by the French Nation and given the title "Daughter of the State."

I believe the setting is perfect for an Assassin's Creed conspiracy script. The King was unlawfully killed, the evil mastermind behind it was assassinated with a hidden dagger, but the identity of the assassin is speculated, and the bad guy had a potentially hot daughter that could appear in DLC's :awesome:

I'm intrigued if I'm right on this for the next time frame in Assassin's Creed III - circa 1790-1780

Plus it'd just be an awesome setting.
