Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Brotherhood

Love's Labour's Lost was a virtual representation of one of Ezio Auditore da Firenze's repressed genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.


During the height of the Bonfire of the Vanities in Florence, Ezio Auditore came across a dying Manfredo Soderini, who informed him that Girolamo Savonarola's men had attacked his home, and that Cristina Vespucci had fled with guards in pursuit.


Ezio found a dying Manfredo lying on the ground.

Love's Labour 2

Ezio talking to a dying Manfredo

  • Ezio: Manfredo!? What happened!?
  • Manfredo: Men... Savonarola's men... They came through, destroying everything.
  • Ezio: Where is Cristina!? Manfredo! WHERE IS SHE!
  • Manfredo: She ran... They went after her!
  • Ezio: No...!

Ezio reached Cristina, under attack by guards.

  • Guard 1: Whore! Where are your riches now?
  • Guard 2: Your fancy house, your expensive dress! They are sins against the Lord!
  • Cristina: Leave me alone! Get away! I did nothing to you!
  • Guard 2: Savonarola will see all you sinners burn!
  • Guard 1: You should have submitted to Savonarola when you were told to!
  • Cristina: Help me! Someone, help!
  • Ezio: Cristina! RUN!

Cristina began to flee and her attackers chased after her. Shortly after, Ezio killed the attackers, however Cristina was mortally wounded. From there, Ezio brought Cristina into a courtyard.

Love's Labour 3

Cristina dying in Ezio's arms

  • Ezio: Cristina... Hold on! I'll get you to a doctor... You're going to be all right.
  • Cristina: No... Ezio... I don't think I am...
  • Ezio: No! Don't... Don't go... Stay with me, Cristina.
  • Cristina: Ezio... Don't you know...? I've always been with you.

Cristina tugged out the pendant around her neck.

  • Cristina: I wish we... could have had... a second chance.

Cristina perished.

  • Ezio: Requiescat in pace (Rest in peace) my love.


Ezio succeeded in fending off Cristina's attackers, however, Cristina died from her wounds.

Behind the scenes

The memory's name was based on a Shakespearean play, Love's Labour's Lost, an early comedy.

In the novel, Ezio was not present when Cristina died, instead he was informed by Niccolò Machiavelli before igniting the revolt against Savonarola.
