- "But, I must have strict assurance from Don Corleone. As time goes by and his position grows and becomes stronger, will he attempt any individual and personal vendetta against us, Don, Kingpin "of whole France" and Master Barzini?"

Samuele Tattaglia was the head of the Tattaglia Family.
Samuele Helento Maria Henry-Vincente Carmine Enzo von Tattaglia III was born to Giacomo "Gambino the Pimp" Tattaglia and Maria Agniello in the city of San Marino, Italy. Tattaglia family immigrated to France in 1978.
Tattaglia was loved by the women, who were impressed by his charm, and he was involved in prostitution and pornography as a young man. He made money off of these businesses, and founded the Tattaglia Family soon after. Tattaglia's criminal offenses were racketeering, prostitution, drug trafficking, murder, conspiracy, extortion, bribery, contract killing, loan sharking, money laundering, hijacking, fencing, theft, and fraud, as his family rose to become one of France City's Five Families. Tattaglia constructed the Tattaglia Mansion in the late 1990s, based in his territory of Crazy Town.
Samuele Tattaglia's womanizing often led him to be thought he was cheating on his wife Mary Tattaglia, though he in fact didn't, and Mary believed him. He was telling the truth after all. In the 2007, following the end of Prohibition, Tattaglia ran out of a source of money, so he invested in the drug trade, allying with Virgil Sollozzo in 2009 when he moved his organization to France. He made tons of money, while his sons took over Little Town from the Corleone Family.
Tattaglia was enraged after Vito Corleone's son Michael Corleone murdered Sollozzo, and a war, The Five Families Mob War began. Samuele's son Bruno Tattaglia was murdered in 2010 in response to the shooting of Vito Corleone back in December 2009, and also for the murder of Frankie Malone in 2010. Charlie Trapani threw him into a cremation oven at Tito Morelli's, a funeral parlor where the body of the Tattaglia Capo and Sam's brother Rudolph Tattaglia would be cremated after a ceremony. Don Tattaglia agreed with Barzinis and allowed Barzini hitmen to kill Santino Corleone in September 2010, and they gunned him down at the Little Town Plaza.
Next month, Tattaglia met with Don Corleone and other members of the Commission, hoping to discuss an end to the Five Families War. Don Corleone gave assurance that as time went by and his position became stronger, that he would not attempt any individual vendettas. He was also forced to accept the drug trade in his territories, which scared away his politicians, forcing him to give some of his police protection to the other families. Meanwhile, the Tattaglias became very loyal and almost servants to the royal Barzini Family that chiseled away at Trapani and Pete Clemenza's territories in Crazy Town, and the Corleones were not allowed to retaliate, since their boss Michael Corleone ordered them to be patient, allowing the Barzinis and their slaves - Tattaglias to have a false sense of security. Vito swore on his grandchildren's name that he would not go to war, but Michael plotted out his own actions, hoping to end all of the rivalries, thus breaking Vito's words.
Don Tattaglia was killed at the St. Sebastian's Hotel in Crazy Town by Corleone Capos Trapani and Rocco Lamp, who were sent to murder him. Trapani bribed his bodyguard on the staircase to let him through, and the guards on the top floor were gunned down in a hail of bullets, and Tattaglia was shot in the body with Tommy Gun 50 times and twice in stomach by Double-barrel Shotgun. Tattaglia was succeeded as Don by Osvaldo Altobello and Rico Tattaglia.
