That’s already in the game though.

hmm perhaps the Magyar invasion of Europe could work with scenarios like invading Iberia

Edit: I don’t know why Oda’s name is censored but I guess you can guess or find who I’m talking about based on context.


MS, this is getting ridiculous. We can’t even talk about history on a forum for a historical game! We’re not 12! Let us say stuff. We don’t need your handholding.


use heros from the editor to make campaigns? Eg. Harold hadrada alexander neveski etc.

Byzantines: Basil I
Slavs: Ivan III the Great
Ethiopians: Amda Seyon I and Kaleb of Axum
And maybe Jayavarman VII for Khmers.

  • Tlacaelel, a major influence over the reign of several emperors and is credited with being the main initiator of the Triple Alliance, and instituting the practice of “Garland Wars.” (C)
  • Ahuitzotl’s Acquisition of Xoconocho, a distant (chocolate) trading center in Maya territory, and far from other Aztec possessions (S)
  • Xicotencatl: (not Aztecs politically, but fellow Nahuas, who could be represented well enough by the existing civ) Tlaxcaltecan POV of the Spanish conquest (with Tlaxcala represented as a somewhat defensively oriented variant of the Aztec civ). (C)


  • Hunac Ceel Cauich Leader during a conflict started Trojan-War style against the Itzás by the abduction of a powerful lord’s wife. Initially defeated by the Itzás in combat, and thrown as a sacrifice into the sacred cenote at Chichen Itzá. He managed to survive and become lord of Mayapan, whereafter he returned and defeated the Itzás, eventually becoming lord of the entire region. (C)

  • Pacal the Great, one of the longest reigning monarchs in history. Expansion and building projects in the city-state of Palenque, a hostage rescue scenario where one of his lords is captured, and wars with various other states. (C)


  • Escape to Vilcabamba: Follows Manco Inca Yupanqui’s escape from Spanish-occupied Cusco, successful counterattacks, defeat of the Spanish at Ollantaytambo, and eventual retreat to Vilcabamba and formation of a Neo-Inca state. Possibly continues with his sons, until the death of Túpac Amaru. Presents some historically justified opportunities for the Incas to use captured Spanish weapons and armor. (C)

It’s already in aoe 3 playing with Morroccans…

Tokugawa Ieyasu is already aoe 3, let’s leave it to Hideyoshi…

Ivan the Terrible and Ivan III are already in the rus campaign of aoe 4, I don’t think they will repeat events… with Alexander Nevsky it will be fine…

It already appears in the battle of Algiers in aoe 3…although I plan to adapt it in aoe 2 xd…

Why not just Hongwu and that’s it… it’s easier to pronounce…

I would add Lady Six Sky who was queen and regent of Naranjo between 682 and 741 and is also a Mayan leader in civ 6…
