Brotherhood Database Entry
- "Constructed in 1290, the Villa Auditore is an original medieval predecessor to early Renaissance architecture. ...
- After a Florentine attack in 1320 left the facade damaged, Domenico Auditore, Ezio Auditore's great-grandfather, purchased the Villa. Although he publicly admitted to a renovation of the facade and the addition of a painting gallery, he orchestrated a complete restructuring of the interior in secret, designing his home to double as a fortress and training ground, looking out both over the city that it protects and the Tuscan plains."
This means that Domenico lived around the time of Dante Alighieri's historical death (in 1321), and that, at least now, this wasn't an error of the writers. I, personally, believe that 1296 was the year of Domenico's birth, not when he made the Auditore Family Crypt, because the title of the first plaque in the Auditore Family Crypt reads "Venice, 1296", which is where he was raised. — M.C.Tales 16:29, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
- I don't think so. He only adopts the name Auditore after his wife is killed. When mentioning their first meeting, he says "that she was only twenty", which most likely means he was older than her. If he was born in 1296, he would be only 24 by the time he started cosntructing the Villa, no time for them to meet, marry, have a son, go on sea, lose the codex, fight the templars, come back and reconstruct the whole village. -- D.

- If Domenico was born in 1296, then he would be 25 when Dante died in 1321, and 28 when Marco Polo died in 1324 (also an event mentioned in the Crypt). Also, he said in the Crypt that he raised his son to fight the Templars, which implies that Domenico's son was young at the time (he could have been five at most when Dante died). Finally, as I said in my first comment, the Database in Brotherhood says that Domenico purchased and renovated the already-existing Villa, as opposed to building it from scratch (which takes more time and resources). — M.C.Tales 17:58, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
Even so, he met his girl when she was only 20, what makes him older. And a 5 years old kid hardly classifies as "raised". -- D. Cello 18:29, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
- In those days, 20 was actually a bit old to be getting married. Also, I meant that from the age of five onward, someone could be said to have been raised. – M.C.Tales 18:48, May 10, 2011 (UTC); Edited 21:45, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
