The Audience Chamber is a Tier 1 government building in Civilization VI: Rise and Fall. It is built in the Government Plaza district and requires a Tier 1 government (Autocracy, Classical Republic, or Oligarchy).

Strategy Edit

The Audience Chamber is a huge help if you're building a tall empire. An extra Amenities6 Amenity and +3 Housing6 Housing in cities with assigned Governors will help them grow larger and more productive. It's particularly useful in situations where you are not a warmonger and there is a shortage of surrounding land. Don't worry too much about the -2 Loyalty in cities without Governors; it is quite negligible.

Civilopedia entry Edit

With the development of monarchical and ruler-centered systems of government came the ritualization of the ruler's conduct of the affairs of state. This was reflected in architecture, as there were many concrete benefits to creating special spaces where the ruler could see and be seen in their role as the head of state. To begin with, you could make the place conspicuously sumptuous or highly ornamental, and overawe anyone stepping inside it even before they started to ask you for things.

An audience chamber is a space designed specifically for access to a ruler in his role as ruler. It might include a throne (and be known as a throne room), or it might lack a throne (although usually it has some way to make it clear who's in charge), or the ruler might be so important that he simply sends lackeys out on his or her behalf, whilst sitting in the actual throne room, thus showing that he's far too busy to meet with anyone right now.
