In that year where AC2 takes place Leonardo da Vinci was 34 while Niccolò Machiavelli was 17.

I wonder for what reason the writers placed the game in 1486 instead of a later time where these two giant personalities had proceeded with their life's work.

For instance Machiavelli didn't write "the Prince" until 1512.

Well, Patrice explained that they wanted to be able to experiment and mold those historical figures more,
so with them being young, before they truly began to make their mark in the world, Ubisoft has more freedom
