Civilization Wiki

The Aztec civilization (Aztecs) is a default civilization in Civilization II.


The Aztecs are a yellow civilization. A game that includes them will not also include the Egyptians or Spanish.

Main article: Leaders (Civ2)

The default male leader of the Aztecs is Montezuma, a variant spelling of Moctezuma II (c. 1460–1520), was the reigning emperor of the Aztec Empire when the Spanish first arrived. After his death, the empire had only two more emperors before it was fully annexed.

The default female leader is Nazca, an ahistorical figure named for the Nazca lines in Peru, in a completely different continent than Aztec territories in present-day Mexico.

Aztec leaders always use the default titles of the various governments.


The Aztec AI is perfectionist and civilized.
