    20 Historically Accurate Things In Assassin's Creed 2 And Brotherhood

    Yep, that’s right, a video game that can actually help you pass your test on Renaissance Italy. Okay, so nobody who knows any history could honestly try to convince you of all that Assassin-Templar stuff, but Assassin’s Creed is not without historical merit. Actually, I could probably write a dissertation on how Assassin’s Creed is historically accurate, but I don’t want to make a post that would go on for fifty pages, so here’s just 20 things ACII (with a bit of Brotherhood action thrown in) got (historically) right:

    1. Leonardo da Vinci

    2. Lorenzo di Medici

    3. The Pazzi Conspiracy

    4. The feud between the Pazzi and the Medici and the aftermath of the conspiracy

    5. Francesco Salviati

    6. Antonio Maffei

    7. Florins

    8. The cities

    9. The common people

    10. Ezio's honor

    11. Caterina Sforza

    12. House of Barbarigo

    13. Venetian Doge Giovanni Mocenigo

    14. Savonarola

    15. Bonfire of the Vanities

    16. The Borgia family (overall)

    17. Cesare Borgia

    18. Leonardo da Vinci working for Cesare Borgia

    19. Rodrigo's death

    20. Machiavelli
