The real Dante was a guy who was a politician who was exiled cause his group lost power.
Then he went to the Underworld, and was guided by Virgil and later by Beatrice past the circles of the Underworld where he climbed into the belly of the One Beneath All and traveled through Purgatory.
He even saw Socrates.
Not to mention he saw the son of Zeus, the most powerful god in all of mount olympus, the creator of the blade of olympus, Kratos' arch enemy, the one behind Ares' death, the one who was destined to win as decided by three nude women, the one who let his brother get beaten to death, the one who blasted Kratos down to the realm of defeat where he lost most of his manly powers so that he must enlist the help of Athena and Aphrodite so that he may regain his manliness, the one who squeezed the power out of Kratos through pure fear, the one with the massive beard!
This Dante has nothing on the true Dante.
The true Dante met Socrates.
