BackArrowGreen.png Back to Civilization VI

Tomyris

Leaders are the human representatives of the playable civilizations in Civilization VI. They are based on historical figures who accomplished great things during their rule or successfully led their people through periods of adversity.

Each leader has both a unique ability (which gives them special bonuses and gameplay advantages) and an agenda (which affects how they play the game and how they interact with other players when controlled by the AI). Some leaders' unique abilities allow them to unlock unique units, buildings, tile improvements or projects after researching specific technologies or civics.

In vanilla, there is one leader per civilization (except the Greeks, who can be led by either Pericles or Gorgo). The Rise and Fall expansion adds Chandragupta as an alternate Indian leader, the Gathering Storm expansion adds Eleanor of Aquitaine as an alternate English and French leader, and the Vietnam & Kublai Khan Pack adds Kublai Khan as an alternate Chinese and Mongolias leader. As of New Frontier Pass, the total number of leaders in the game is 54.
