I never understood why Connor is referred to by most fans as a Kenway. Haytham didn't marry Kaniehti:io did he? Or did i miss that scene??? If he didn't then Connor was born out of wedlock and is a bastard.
CardmasterWild Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2017  Hobbyist Artist
Connor referred to Haytham as "father". Never once did he refer to Haythem by his name. And when Achilles reminded him of who was on his hit list he told Connor "...even your father".

People have already stated that the Kenway line is the father's side but they did the games out of order for the particular reason that Edward isn't the blood carrier from Altair's bloodline, it was the woman he married. The more you know. <3

Edward Kenway's parents and sister are stated in this article…
His sister's birth and death dates aren't listed though.
So glad to see a timeline for all of them!  Any idea when the new assassin's creed games will be added?  (Syndicate is one, I think they had Unity and some others, unless you have them already.  I've only played Ezio's trilogy, 3 and 4 so I don't know the names used in the other games)

Hi! if you're interested in the family tree from the other assassin's creed games, such as Syndicate, Unity, etc., all under one roof, you can visit my work:…

I consider the family tree that I did a comprehensive one (COMPLETE) as of 11/11/2016, and also I promise you every character in the family tree that I created are ALL canon in the Assassin's Creed universe. :D

wow a huge family
rinlenmiku Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2015
Wow what a big family(?)
nishi-ki Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2015
the only mistake is, that the Kenway line is the line of Desmond's father not of his mother.
Vitooria Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2018
That's actually not true. The said in one of the games, in Revelations ir maybe the 3rd, that Desmond genes came from his mother.
AgentNightmare Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2015
Is this supposed to be the updated one or is that located somewhere else?  Because this is incorrect.  In AC3, Desmond tells his father that Haytham is his ancestor too, so Edward, Haytham, and Ratonhnhaketon are supposed to be on William Miles' side of the family tree.

Amazinggggg :o
OraTexLadi Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I just noticed something...Im repaying ACIII and right after Desmond comes out of the Animus and finding out Haytham was a Templar, he mentions to his dad that he was a descendant of Haytham too.

Both his mom and dad could be related (although very, very distantly I imagine).
RyAction Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2016
The Kenway line is only on the father's side.
OraTexLadi Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Alrighty, thanks :)
OraTexLadi Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Interesting. I thought that it was Desmonds dad's side of the family that were the Assassins, but I was wrong. :D
Louis-Nap Featured By Owner Edited Aug 25, 2015
this needs to be updated about arno and the connection between shay, also the assassins creed game, liberation's. assassins creed syndicate also needs to be added to this, sometime around the industrial revolution where maybe Jacob and Evie frye come into it.  i have a few theories that arno and the main protagonist in liberation's and other games are siblings of/are the unknown generations are married into the family and have kids where there are missing generations, this needs to be updated completely because maybe then we will understand the full game and where all the characters come from.

funny how none of the assassins come from his fathers side, yet we know who he is, but we do not know who the mother is and from what is shown all of the assassins come from the mothers side

ahh, cleared all my problems with this relation-ship of Desmond Miles,
The best explainable family Tree!!!!!!!
NEDNielsIJ Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2015
I haven't read all the comments so I don't know if it's already said, but there are some more links. I see Rogue and Unity aren't updated to, but if you do you can maybe put this information in it to;

In AC3 we meet Achilles, and in ACR we see him again. We also see Adéwalé from AC4 back in ACR.
The main character of ACU is Arno Dorian, son of Charles Dorian, who gets killed. In ACR, Shay gets the mission to kill Charles.

There are also some links in Abstergo's future things .. (sorry my English is not so good), because at the end of AC4 you can hear Shaun and Rebecca talking. Shaun and Rebecca were helping Desmond in the earlier AC's. In AC4, Melanie is your kinda boss and Olivier is the boss of Abstergo, and in ACR, Melanie is Abstergo's boss.

I hope this information will help you :)
NEDNielsIJ Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2015
Edward is born in 1693 and his daughter with Caroline is named Jennifer Scott, not Jenny Kenway ;)
Dyerdon Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2014
Altair and Ezio are on Desmond's mother's side, Edward, Haytham, and Connor, are on his father's side.
Highrock-Knight Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014
Nope,in AC4 in real time in hacking we got a mail where says that Auditore and Kenway family on Desmond's father side,and Altair and some assassin from french revolution (i don't know is this Arno or not) from mother side.
Kuragiri Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2014
I thought I read somewhere that Ezio comes from William's side and Altair from Desmond's mother's side.

1. Tessa Kenway (née Stephenson-Oakley; unknown – 1747) was the second wife of Edward Kenway, the mother of Haytham, and the grandmother of Ratonhnhaké:ton. She is also an ancestor of Desmond Miles, through the paternal line.

2. Linette Kenway (née Hopkins) was a farmer from Cardiff, Wales, the wife of Bernard Kenway and the mother of Edward Kenway. She was the grandmother of Edward's two children, Haytham Kenway and Jennifer Scott, as well as the great-grandmother of Haytham's son, Ratonhnhaké:ton.

3. Bernard Kenway (unknown – December 1717) was an English sheep farmer from Manchester, the husband of Linette Kenway and the father of Edward Kenway; as such, he is an ancestor of Desmond Miles.

Thank you! I've been looking for one of these for ages. I always wondered who Connor ended up marrying though...he never seemed the type.!
Lyfe77 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2014
Hey if you check out the Assassin's Creed Wiki you should be able to fill in alot of these names. Here's a Link:…

Like for instance, Dominco Auditore's son is Renato and both Dominco and Renato are ancestors or both Desmond Miles and Clay Kaczmarek.
I'm assuming this would make them like cousins or something.
GX3D Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I still want to know the connection between Ezio and Edward

This is lovely. I've been looking everywhere for a good Assassin family tree. Thank you.
ultimatehero128 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014
I thought that Connor was Desmond's ancestor through his Paternal line, aka, his dad, William.
AssassinMistress Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2014  Student General Artist
You're Correct.
spongeboy1985 Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2014
It's been stated that The Kenways are not related to the Audtore or Ibn-La'Ahad lines meaning that one of Connors decedents procreted  with most likely an Auditore descendant but we don't know for sure spo that could explain the blue question mark at the end of the Ibn-La'Ahad  and Auditore lines. I think Black Flag confirms Desmons mother comes from the Ibn-La'Ahad line which would leave the Kenway and Auditore lines to the Miles'…
(ubisoft was possibly trolling us, the list was made in response to fan request and many are based on what people want to see, but this list could still be considered canon as  the French revolution (Unity's setting) is on the list
GX3D Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
But I would like to know who will be the protagonist in Assassin's Creed Unity all I know it's the french revolution time period so when was that?
Kitti-Featherwolf Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014  Student Filmographer
The main character's name is Arno Dorian. La la la la Love  
GX3D Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
guy or girl?
Kitti-Featherwolf Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014  Student Filmographer
He's a guy. It would be cool if there was a girl to play as, though.
Kitti-Featherwolf Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2014  Student Filmographer
Sorry, I should have clarified right away. He's the guy in blue in the AWESOME trailer. If you haven't seen it yet, you can just look it up on YouTube.:) (Smile) 
allmenofusa Featured By Owner May 1, 2014
Very cool, but, two thing: Sef Ibn-La'Ahad was murdered as a child by Abas, Altair's rival; and Edward Kenway have other wife, Caroline, and a daughter, Jennifer.

The rest is very fine, and is very good. I was serching the Family tree of Desmond Miles.
