- Main article: Leaders (Civ2)
The default male leader of the English is Henry VIII (1491–1547), a Tudor king of England and Ireland. He is mostly known for his concern with producing a male heir for his throne, which caused him to undertake the English Reformation and ultimately to marry six times.
The default female leader is Elizabeth I (1533–1603), Tudor queen of England and Ireland and daughter of Henry VIII. Taking power upon her brother and sister's deaths, she maintained her independence by avoiding marriage and most wars, but—when threatened by the Spanish—her naval forces were able to defeat its Grand Armada in 1588. Her reign is also well known for its flourishing culture, including Shakespeare's plays.
English leaders use the default titles except under fundamentalism and democracy. An English high priest or priestess is known as a "lord protector" (male) or "lady protector" (female). An English president, like a Greek or Japanese one, is known as a "prime minister".
The English AI is expansionist.
- Main article: City (Civ2)
The English city list starts with the major medieval cities of London and York. It then proceeds fairly randomly through other settlements and battle sites within England proper.
- London (default capital)
- St. Albans
When this list is completed, the game continues with the names in the extra cities list. When that list is completed, the game cycles back to the top of this list with "London" again.
- Main article: Scenario (Civ2)
The English appear in the World War II scenario as the Allies, led by Churchill.
