Obviously Assassin's Creed laughs in the face of actual history because actual history is boring. Queen Victoria, Florence Nightingale and Karl Marx in AC Syndicate? Sure, let's go with that.
You can check Team History out in the gallery with Victoria, Nightingale and Marx joining the previously announced Darwin, Dickens and Alexander Graham Bell. How this lot will play into you adventure is largely a mystery for the time being. We do know that Bell is your da Vinci this time around. He crafts stuff for you including the series' new Rope Launcher, and features in a mission where you have to fix fuses on top of Big Ben as he tries to invent a new type of telegraph. You can get more on the fine details in Louise's Assassin's Creed Syndicate preview. And, in case you're fictional history is a little rusty, he does invent the telephone during the game, but it's assassin Evie that names it.
As for the rest, we'll have to see. I doubt Queen Vic will be climbing any towers in a side quest with those skirts. Previous glimpse of Darwin and Dickens suggest these characters will be more advisors and informants than active participant. Although I really, really, want Karl Marx to turn out to be an old assassin who trying to get his socialist groove back.
