French Kiss was a virtual representation of one of Ezio Auditore's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus 2.01.


Ezio Auditore told Bartolomeo d'Alviano and his men to retreat, convincing them that he had a plan to infiltrate the French camp. Ezio met Bartolomeo back at the barracks and informed him of his plan, to gather several suits of French armor and walk straight into the French camp. Bartolomeo approved of this idea and Ezio set off to gather the armor.


Ezio and Bartolomeo arrived at the barracks.

Ezio explaining his plan to Bartolomeo

  • Bartolomeo: So, you have a plan?
  • Ezio: Once inside, your men can overpower the camp's patrols, correct?
  • Bartolomeo: Yes, but...
  • Ezio: Especially if the patrols are taken completely by surprise?
  • Bartolomeo: Ma certo. (Of course.)
  • Ezio: Then we need to liberate several suits of French armor. At dawn, we are going to walk right in.
  • Bartolomeo: Hah! Ezio Auditore you are truly a man after my own heart. Magnifico! (Magnificent!)
  • Ezio: I will get the armor.
  • Bartolomeo: My troops will gather it from the dead. We will then depart from the north, so as not to arouse suspicion.
    And Ezio. Make sure to kill them without a fight. The armor has to stay clean.

Ezio assassinated 20 French soldiers and Bartolomeo's troops gathered the armor from the dead.


Ezio succeeded in acquiring the armors required to infiltrate the French camp.


  • Ezio can call in Assassin apprentices and hire mercenaries to eliminate the guards.
  • Although Ezio kills twenty French guards of different archetypes to acquire their armor, in the following memories, Bartolomeo's mercenaries are all clad in the armor of Leaders while Ezio himself wears a captain's armor.
