For the special unit class, see Leader.

In the first three editions of the Civilization series, each nation had only one leader who was inseparable from the civilization they led. However, Civilization IV added the possibility of not only choosing your civ but your leader as well. Each civilization had from one to three leaders to choose from. See the list of civilizations article for a summary of available civs and leaders.
