Main article: Leaders (Civ2)

The default male leader of the Vikings is Canute, a variant spelling of Cnut. Cnut the Great (c. 995–1035) was a Knytling king of Denmark and Norway who conquered the English in 1016. He is famed for having ridiculed his fawning adherents by futilely commanding the tide to rise no further.

The default female leader is Gunnhild. A number of noble Norsewomen bore this name, including the witch Gunnhild Kingsmother, Cnut's mother Gunnhild of Wenden, Cnut's daughter the German empress Gunnhild, and Gunnhild Svensdaughter, queen of Denmark and Sweden.

Viking leaders use governments' default titles, except under despotism. A Viking emperor or empress is known as a "warlord".

Personality[edit | edit source]

The Viking AI is aggressive and expansionist.
