Arkham Asylum is located outside Gotham City. It was founded by Amadeus Arkham who named the asylum after his mother, Elizabeth Arkham. Arkham had a dark history. in the early 1900s a patient by the name of Martin "Mad Dog" Hawkins was brought to Arkham to be treated. Mad Dog escaped and found Amadeus's house and murdered his wife and carved his name into her body. Mad Dog was captured and brought back to Arkham Asylum where Amadeus personally treated him. Amadeus straped him to an electro shock couch and perposelly electocuted him. The staff treated the death as an accident. Amadeus was committed to the asylum where he slowley decended into mental illness, which he believed was his birthright. Amadeus was a patient at his own asylum where he died.
