Can someone give a source for this?--PhantomT1412 11:09, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
See, this is exactly what i was talking about on the Assassin's Creed III talk page. People really need to start using references and sourcing alot more. Piratehunter (Talk•Contribs•Logs) 11:11, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
- You're welcome. Well with the lack of references on this Wiki, it does not always encourage to put ones but yeah, we should really start having that habbit. For the ACIII page, I felt it was needed (since I exactly remembered where he said that). --PhantomT1412 11:16, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
Well i've got quite alot in store for this wiki. I'm gonna make it as great as it needs to be. And you guys helpin and all will make it that much easier. Piratehunter (Talk•Contribs•Logs) 11:22, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
The featured image does not show Domenico Auditore, if I'm not mistaking. It is used in Project Legacy for the assassin who hid the Shroud in the mine of Monteriggioni. However, that assassin can not be Domenico, as he died around 1296 and the Shroud was stolen from Geoffroi de Charny who was born around 1300 and did most likely get into possession of the Shroud when he was older.
Where is it said Domenico died around 1926?! -- Master Sima Yi 11:16, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
- In 1296, before his death.. Maybe I just understood that one wrong though. Considering that Dante was apparently older than Domenico's father and died in 1321.. - StPerkele 11:24, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
Brotherhood Database Entry
The database entry for the Villa Auditore in Brotherhood says:
- "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, 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. — M.C.Tales 13:52, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
He was not born in 1296; the wiki labels this as the beginning of his "active" years. I assumed that just meant it was a rough estimate of his actual lifetime until I realized that it was impossible. Domenico and his family got on a boat heading towards Spain from Venice to flee Templars in 1321 after Dante's death. En route, pirates working for Templars killed his wife and sunk the ship. Domenico and his son Renato both survived by swimming to shore... from god knows where in the middle of the Mediterranean. If Domenico was born in 1296, he would have been 25 at this time. There was no way in hell he would have had time to have a son that was strong enough to survive that entire incident by 25. Rationally, the kid would probably have been 15 at the youngest, although maybe a very strong 8-year-old could survive with a miracle. Still, that means Renato would have been born sometime before 1306 (maybe 1313 at MOST). Which would mean Domenico would have been 10 when he was born. :/ Now, if you click on Dante's wiki page, there's a bit that says, "In the late 13th century, Dante was tasked with the training of the son of a fellow Assassin, who would later be known as Domenico Auditore." Late 13th century means the late 1200s... which is where the wiki gets the year 1296 as the beginning of Domenico's "active" years, since that's the year he started being trained. Now, it's implied by the wiki that Domenico gets married and has Renato before his father reveals he's an assassin and asks Dante to train him, meaning Domenico was probably in his mid/late-20s at the earliest in 1296. I'd place his year of birth at 1276 at the latest, but probably within the range of 1266-1276. That being said, I wish I could find the database entry that speaks of Domenico; I want to confirm that the real source also implies he already had Renato by the 1296. Since Domenico's training seemed to have lasted for 25 years, there's plenty of time in there to marry and have a kid during that time, rather than before, which would allow for his year of birth to be anytime earlier than 1286 (if he had Renato at 20 and Renato was 15 in 1321). Renato's son (Mario and Giovanni's father) started training his children in assassin ways from infancy, yet Giovanni waited to train his sons until they were in their early teens (and only a little bit of climbing and punching even then; Mario had to teach Ezio how to use a sword and Paoula had to teach Ezio how to blend), so there doesn't seem to be a hard-and-fast tradition on what age assassins start training their children. With all that being said, I'd put Domenico's birth date range from about 1266-1286. Spartanqueenem (talk) 01:44, September 9, 2018 (UTC) spartanqueenem
