assassins history

Originally “Assassin” word came from the Arabic word “Hashishin”, the word refers to a secret group of a murder cult, appeared in the 11th century, and was originally founded by Hasan Ben Sabah.

They were a group of people who believed in doing unholy actions like murders along with other things to serve their own cause.

The word “Hashishin” in Arabic refers to some kind of weed drug addiction, some historical references declares that their leaders took control of the people by making them addicts to certain organic drugs, which make them obedient and to follow them in every possible way.

Their leader Hasan Ben Sabah believed to be a famous follower of Isma’ili beliefs.

The group had a division known as the Assassins, which was involved in assassination murders and kidnapping people, some historians said that these people were very highly trained in such operations, and they were not just ordinary people.

In opposite of the film and the game, the reality still a myth about that group, as we don’t have a lot of information about this kind of cult.

Assassins were introduced before in “Prince of Persia: the sands of time – 2010”, as a group of extremists who would practice crimes for money, and they were doing mysterious actions like practicing black magic and taking control of evil creatures.

Assassin`s Creed is expected to be released in the U.S. and France theaters on the 21st of December 2016, and on the 1st of January 2017 in UK theaters.
