Civilization IV: Civilizations
By ori at 2007-01-25 00:03

There are 34 civilizations and 52 leaders total in Civilization IV. Some civilizations have three leaders, others have two, and a few have just one. Unlike Civilization III, in Civ4 the traits are associated with the leaders, not with the civilization. Each leader has two traits. Each trait provides a unique bonus and usually cuts the hammer cost of one or two city improvements by half.

In addition, each civilization has a unique flag and its units will speak in the civilization's language when clicked (like in RTS games). Every civilization has their own unique unit and unique building, both of which give an additional bonus. To view the specifics about these unique aspects of each civilization, visit the Units and City Improvements pages.

NOTE: Information in this section is correct as of Beyond the Sword v3.17.

Note: Click a leader icon to see the large leader portrait. All information is for the Beyond the Sword expansion pack, version 3.17, except for the "Original Traits" column, which refers to the traits of some leaders in the original game without expansion packs, as some leaders' traits were changed in Warlords and Beyond the Sword. If there is only one set of traits, either that leader came in one of the expansion packs or has not had their traits modified.
