Hassan-i Sabbāh (c. 1050–1124) was the founder and leader of the Levantine Brotherhood of Assassins from 1090 until his death.[1]

Under his leadership, the Levantine Brotherhood established a sovereign state in their own right from their capital of Alamut. The move was unprecedented, marking the first time in history that the Assassin Order entered public consciousness.[1] It was Hassan's hope that the public presence of the Assassins would make people realize that they were not alone in their fight against oppression and to inspire them to stand up for themselves—though the Assassins' practices continued to be kept closely guarded secrets.[2]
