London is the capital of England. The Romans called the city Londinium and in the 9th century it was called Lunden.

AD 50 to 430 [edit | Edit source]

London was founded by the Romans around 50 AD under the name Londinium. Based on the Amunetsrömischer Brotherhood of the Hidden, the first brotherhood houses were built in Britain by the end of the 1st century AD. The Londinium Brotherhood House is believed to be one of the first to be founded.

In 420 the Romans leave London and all of England, in 430 the hidden ones also leave the island. Londinium is believed to be the last Brotherhood House that the Hidden Ones left.

9th century Edit source]

Christian things believe the Roman ruins of the city are cursed and leave them. Halfdan Ragnarsson occupies the city with the summer army and takes it. In 469 Trygg becomes governor of London. Trygg makes the Saxons Stowe and the Danes Erke Bodilsson and Avgos Speerhand his Greven. In the absence of the hidden, the Order of Elders spreads across England and uses the city as an important base.

873 there are three members of the order in Lunden. Sister Frideswid is the best healer in town. She kills many of the city's residents in search of knowledge and wisdom. The Greve Avgos is an excellent protector who incites the people against foreigners. Vicelin is the leader of the order in Lunden.

Ælfred von Westseaxe warns Trygg about the order. The warning reaches him too late and Trygg is murdered by Friedeswid, Avgos and Vicelin in the governor's villa. Eivor Varinsdottir meets Stowe and Erke they follow the instructions from the letter and can eliminate the Friedeswid and Avgos. Vicelin attacks the city from the port and sets parts of the city on fire. Eivor kills Vicelin on his ship. Stowe and Erke decide to rebuild the city together.

Extinguish sources of fire

After Margareta's death, her co-conspirators spread out over various small counties across England. They call on the people to rise up against Heinrich. We have to find the ringleaders and eliminate them.

Although we have no interest in protecting Heinrich from his people, we must not allow the Templars to lead this rebellion. No doubt we will find them in their ranks.

We don the local costume and mix with the angry crowd. There we look for those who are the loudest or the most persuasive.

These men build on ignorance and fear! Rule is never free from corruption, but here we hear an extraordinary amount of lies and exaggerations. Templar methods.

Killing these men would be easy, but what comes next? Would we martyr them?

In the end we decide that the will of these people is none of our business. They have the right to express their needs and make demands. With careful and covert shots we kill all but one of the Templars. We'll squeeze out the last one. In exchange for his life, he shares troubling things with us.

The surviving Templar explains that these maneuvers should distract us from the real conspiracy: The Templars have infiltrated the Star Chamber, England's secret court of justice.

Heir to the throne

The Templars are actively trying to gain power over the throne of England. King Henry VII thwarted the first two attempts by imprisoning Lambert Simnel and hanging Perkin Warbeck. Both were contenders for the throne. Finds the connection and prevents further attempts.

Heinrich tells that the two candidates were in league with Margaret of York, but he cannot take action against her as she is related to the Holy Roman Emperor.

We don't tell Heinrich who we are, just that we have common interests. He wants us to assure him that Margaret will die a "natural" death.

Margareta thinks she is safe. We are surprised to see her surrounded by her acquaintances, but not by guards.

Two of us hold up Margareta's servants with questions and suggestions, while a third enters her apartment.

In order to avoid accidentally wasting our poison on one of the servants or a taster, we split up the ingredients of a deadly brew, and only when combined in the body does it have a deadly effect. A pinch of food, a knife point in make-up and a fine touch on your pillow.

Margaret of York passed away "peacefully". Outside the Brotherhood, only King Henry knows of our involvement. We let him think he bought our services with royal money, but the truth is we dealt a severe blow to the Templar conspiracy in England.

The stone chamber

King Heinrich uses the star chamber to accuse powerful public figures without the public's knowledge. Now that our enemy has infiltrated this court, he has a powerful weapon in his hands.

Heinrich uses the chamber to neutralize dangerous political opponents. The damage to our allies could be enormous. We will identify and remove the Templars.

We ask the king directly if he suspects a councilor. Unfortunately not. He advises us to stop the investigation. We bribe part of his dish, but only come across vague rumors.

We ignore Heinrich's instructions and follow the council members. There is nothing suspicious to observe for days. We threaten them to study their reactions, but they stay calm. Did the Templar play with us?

Contact! Two ambassadors from Rome have arrived and met with four veteran members of the Star Chamber. The letters they have delivered bear the Borgia's seal! The English sign it and give it back!

We ambush the group of Borgia and kill the two men with ease! The letter warns of our interference in the Templar conspiracy. We deliver the letter to the king. Should he take care of his men.

We identified the Templars in the star chamber and handed them over to Heinrich's guards. In gratitude, Heinrich offered us one of the empty seats at the court. We leave it to the Brotherhood to decide whether to accept or reject it.

18th century Edit source]

In 1723 the assassin Edward Kenway moved to London with his daughter Jennifer Scott. Edward leads the British Assassins along with Miko. He moves into what will later become the Kenway estate. Edward met his future wife, Tessa Kenway, and Edward's second child, Haytham Kenway, was born in 1925. Edward finds the Eden cloth and hides it in the Tower of London.

In 1732 the Theater Royal opens in London. On December 4, 1733, Edward attended the theater with his daughter and son.

In 1754, Haytham Kenway kills the British assassin Miko in a box at the Theater Royal in London. He takes the amulet from Miko and sets off for Boston.

In 1754, Haytham frees Jennifer and she returns to the Kenway Estate. She begins to rebuild the house and lives the rest of her life in the property. One of the few visitors she receives is Élise de la Serre.

19th century Edit source]

The British assassins are severely weakened by Haytham's attacks and the Templars take over London.

Crawford Starrick controls the city in 1860. Ethan Frye sends the Indian assassin Jayadeep Mir to London to spy for the assassins. In 1892 Jaydeep Mir took the name "Henry Green" and built a network of informants.

In 1886 Evie and Jacob Frye come to London. Together with Jayadeep Mir they fight Starrick. They kill him and bring London back under the control of the assassins.

Henry VII of the House of Tudor rules England with unrestricted power. But although England enjoys peace and stability under his rule, she could soon fall victim to the Templars' intrigues.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

In the 9th century, Lunden (better known today as London) was, as is so often the case, on the move. The city had largely been abandoned by the Christians because they believed the ruins of the ancient Roman city to be cursed. But during the occupation by the summer army, the huge architecture proved not only to be an excellent shelter, but also a landmark and memorial for more splendid days of the past.
