So i did research on the characters in Assassin's Creed II and i found out that Niccolo Machiavelli, Cesare Borgia, Rodrigo Borgia(Alexander VI), and the Medici Family are real. Is the Auditore Family real?

how old are you?
I'm asking your age because many people that have taken a High School history class know this and those are all historical figures during the Renaissance. And no, the Auditore Family is not a historical family.

In your defense, not everyone is exposed to this in high school. In the U.S. it all depends on what school district you are in - and alot of them suck. In Europe, however, I would guess this is standard reading. Us Americans get ignorant about a many things when in school.

He's right, Renaissance history isn't a standar for more high schools.

Here in Mexico we just get modern history from 1800 onwards, it's **** sure, but there's always books and internet.

I never learned anything about the Renaissance in high school but a little bit in middle school. However, if you take art history class(es), you'll encounter the Medici EVERYWHERE. Once I started reading on my own about the Medici, I started learning about the other historical figures. In fact, it was through my research that I found Assassin's Creed. XD

Also, Machiavelli wrote a very well-known book called The Prince. You'll pretty much encounter it in the classical section of almost any bookstore.

no sorry, the family isn't real
AC2 is based of historical figures so at times it will make you think that some of these people were real

The Auditore's were a real family but there name wasnt orginally auditore. It was changed by the great great grand dad in ac2 who made the villa. They originally lived in venice. And At the age of 17, Ezio Auditore was taken OUT of history because he commeted a serious crime, and in ac2 he becomes an assassin at the age of 17. Hence it all falling into place.

It isn't necessary as such to know history in europe either. Really, history in general isn't that vital to know for most people.

Of course, I know plenty more about britain's history than the average american i'd guess. Just as the average american knows plenty more about american history.

I find it very funny how every time a topic like that pops up there is always someone who believes what is said in the game to be real facts. THE AUDITORE FAMILY DEPICTED IN THE GAME IS NOT REAL! There may have been some family going by that name but the game is not based on them. The people in the game are fictional. SOME are based on real people but most are not. The character bios in the game are written within the game's universe, that doesn't mean that they are true in our world. It's a game!

Most history learned in England is about the succesions of kings during the 1000 and 1100 and mainly WW1 and WW2. If you do learn any Italian Renissance history is if you do history of art in uni, not a topic I would choose.

In Denmark we don't learn about the Italian Rennaisance at all. Actually, all we DO learn about is boring Danish kings and queens no one gives a about, world war 1 and 2 and Napoleon. Seriously. I'd give my right arm to learn ANYTHING about greek mythology, egyptian times, the italian rennaisance.. ANYTHING BUT DANISH AND GERMAN STUFF. it's so boring going to schools in denmark.
The only thing about Italy we discussed like one time was about who made Mona Lisa and if that same person made the Vitruvian man.. half my class had no idea. Morons.

In Brazil we learn a little bit of everything, besides our own history. It's been seven years since i've graduated in high school.

Back in my school days, i've studied Greek and Roman history, Renaisance, Napoleon, French Rev., European modern history, like WW1 and WW2, America's Discovery (the continent, not the country), Spanish conquers, Portuguese colonization, something about Asian and Middle-East too. Unfortunately i haven't study anything at all form African/ Egypcian history.

I learned a lot of history in Middle School actually (Medieval, Renaissance, French Rev., Industrial Rev, and more). All we learned in High School were things for American History. We didn't have a World History class.

Everything else, I learned on my own or from my dad who is a fellow history buff.

As for the whole 'Auditore Family' debate, well, out of all the research I've done over the years I have never heard the name before AC2. Chances are Ubisoft team got inspiration froma different family or families and based the Audtores on them.

same here in germany, instead of dutch history.

however, if you learn something only about your countries history or not, it is by everyone by his/her own to learn more about history in his/her FREE TIME, if you are really interested in history. About any time, topic what are you interested in or curious to know more about. All you need are good and well written books or movie documentations. Or museums.

but yes, people generally doesn't care much about history, either in europe or america.

which i can not understand, because i think history is cool.

the Auditore family were real ubisoft just took a family with hardly any facts on them at all which is why ubisoft could create the fictional story around them

its the same principle as choosing a time period in history that not many people know about so that a fictional story can be made around it

I have actually learned from AC.

Before it, all I knew about was Leonardo Da Vinci. Seriously.

After playing it, I knew who the Medici was,the Borgia's, and more. I also learned how to talk Italian (very few words though). I even learned some history lessons. I can separate fast from fiction.

Once you are older, like college age (Im American so that means 18 or 19) check out "The Prince" by Machiavelli. Its mentioned in the game, but I would say it is not mentioned in the correct context. Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, and Lenin all lived by the teachings of Nicolo, so it is a great example of how to become a great politician, yet a tyrant at the same time. I suggested it for when you are older because then your brain may be mature enough to disregard all the things that would turn you into a monster.

I actually picked up on that half way through, because he actually hated the Medici, why try to gain favor?

04-13-2011, 11:38 PM
The Prince might be a work of satire. One thing is clear, Machiavelli, based on every single other thing he wrote, was an idealist and a republican through and through and I think it is entirely safe to say, he didn't believe a single word of what he said as being the proper way to rule. Even if the methods in the book did work.

And the Auditores were 100% not real. Anyone who says otherwise is just putting a massive sign up saying they are idiots. I took about half a dozen classes relating to the renaissance and middle ages in college, two of which were basically entirely about Northern Italy. There is alot of stuff written down, about everyone, even those banished by Florence. The Auditores simply did not exist.

Actually, they are real. Ezio became a criminal in 1476 and there wasn't much in history about him after that so they added in their own story about what happened after. Maria Auditore's diary is on display in a museum somewhere...i can't remember where right now. La Volpe was a real thief, Niccolo Machievilli was real and so was Rodrigo Borgia, Caesre, and Lucretia (Lucrezia). I know this info because in my school we are making our own renaissance faire and i had to research the renaissance XD

I love it when people make stuff up to suit their own needs. Especially when they lie and cannot back anything up unless it's with a lame excuse.

The Auditore Family is make believe... It did not nor never existed. Auditore is a commune in Italy.

Nothing else unless it's in Assassin's Creed does Auditore show up. The BORGIAS are real people and they basically acted like they were represented. They were after all the original crime family.

P.S. I love your mis-truths.

I don't know why people have to be so negative to those who believe they may have been real. Hell I didn't know much about the Renaissance beyond the artwork before I played AC so who knows.

If its any consolation I actually did some google-ing myself to solve the question and I actually got the same results as Auditore8120 said. Now I'm not sure if this is actual fact or not but at least you know its something that's floating around out there.

that is literally of no significance. da Firenze just means he is from Florence. Also many people flocked to Rome during this time.

As far as I am aware, most is based on historical events, however the auditore line and the villa in monteggrionni is not (Although you will find those names in historical texts.)

Obviously, everyone knows the Borgia line as it has been milked in 101 documentaries and even a series on Sky Atlantic, and Leonardo Da Vinci and Machiavelli are well known to most high school graduates studying that period (well here in england anyway).

Ubisoft have used these characters to reinforce the story they wish to encapsulate the user within. After all the best way to make someone believe something you have made up is to smother it in a bit of hard fact http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

So if i see one more person trying to hint that the assasins were real and that ubisoft are making ground breaking historical advances, I'm going to disown the internets. lol

How can you learn history without the Renaissance? It is a key moment in history! I cannot believe it.

Easy. I never once had a history lesson in any of my schools that covered the Renaissance period. I did know and read about the period outside of class, but that wasn't you question/point.

Assassin's Creed is a twist of historical fact to produce fiction, which is really cool. The Auditore family actually did live in Rennaissance era Italy. Ezio, however is a completely crafted character. History states that there may have been a middle son in the family. Not likely but possible. Like Petruccio, the middle son is rumored to be ill and in a coma, whic is why there isnt much information on him. Giovanni was a banker, teaching his older son the ways of banking. Giovannis wife was an art afficianato and is said to have traveled to Rome to see Leonardo Davinci before his death in the early 1500s. Also, if you read the in-game accounts by shawn, he says that the events that desmond lives as ezio isnt written down in history. The villa Auditore is probably fake, but could definately be real. Its definately possible for Ezio to be real, but is highly unlikely. Events in Assassins Creed can actually be traced down to the person that Ezio is killing and when they die. Just look them up. When Cesare kills Rodrigo in Brotherhood, he actually killed his dad with a poisoned apple because dear ol dad found out about the affair with his Sister and was going to kill him. Thats part of the reason rome fell apart soon after that. :cool:

Stop making up lies. It's obviously a work of fiction, just accept it.

OT: I actually didn't realise these characters were real until the other day. My history classes seemed to skip over the Renaissance period really quickly :/ Australia has the most boring history.

The Auditore Family, are. Not real. Neither is Altair. They were a made up family. The book is a reference too one The Prince, which was 100 pages. It has nothing too do with Ezio. Ezio is fake. Deal with it.

No.


History states that there may have been a middle son in the family. Not likely but possible. Like Petruccio, the middle son is rumored to be ill and in a coma, whic is why there isnt much information on him. Giovanni was a banker, teaching his older son the ways of banking.

No. Most of these was written in the fictional database entries of ACII.


Also, if you read the in-game accounts by shawn, he says that the events that desmond lives as ezio isnt written down in history.
When it's said in the in-game accounts by Shaun, it must be true, yeah, sure.


The villa Auditore is probably fake, but could definately be real.
No. It's obviously fake. Monteriggioni really exists, I've even been there, and if you took just 10 seconds and googled it, you would see, that the Villa (as well as most of Monteriggioni except for its wall and the church) is made up.

Its definately possible for Ezio to be real, but is highly unlikely.
No, it is not possible.


Events in Assassins Creed can actually be traced down to the person that Ezio is killing and when they die. Just look them up.
How about you look them up? Most of the persons died at the time they were assassinated in the franchise, but most of them died because of disease or old age or, in case of Savonarola or Francesco De Pazzi, were executed.


When Cesare kills Rodrigo in Brotherhood, he actually killed his dad with a poisoned apple because dear ol dad found out about the affair with his Sister and was going to kill him. Thats part of the reason rome fell apart soon after that. http://static5.cdn.ubi.com/u/ubiforums/20120411.419/images/smilies/cool.png
Oh my god. Do you have any clue of what you're talking about? It is not known, whether Rodrigo was poisoned or not, although it is likely considering the circumstances of his death. However, it is not known who poisoned him and it was probably not Cesare. Rodrigo had a lot of enemies (for example some of the other mighty Roman families).
Also, he most likely knew about their affair (if there actually was one, which is not absolutely proven). Because he - again, according to historical documents - had an affair with Lucrezia too.

Long story short, your post was complete ********.
