    Aren't both Isabella of Castille and the different Montezumas pretty much always confused with one another in Civ games?

    I highly doubt this, there hasn't been any mention from the developers of multiple leaders for one civ

    That picture of Montezuma II is one of the first results on Google image search for Montezuma I, so if anything it solidifies the theory that they just got the wrong Isabella's picture and we do have Isabella I for Spain.

    There isn't a particularly lifelike portrait of Montezuma I, given that the Aztecs didn't produce that sort of art themselves, and he died long before the Spanish turned up. So they probably just went for their favourite Aztec Emperor portrait of the ones available. I certainly don't expect the Aztecs to end up with two leaders (especially not Monty II!)

    We already got Barbarossa right, so it can't be that bad. :p

    so.. do you think they will model Isabella of Castille's appearance based on Isabella of Portugal? Unlike Monty I or II, there's enough European art / painting that illustrate them.. I think.

    But does mean that for the "mystery" portraits, we'd need to nail down not only what the image is but what the intention of the person posting it up there was. Maybe the ones people can't figure out are of a totally unrelated image that reminded the "author" of a famous leader for some reason. :D

    I believe the Gustavus in BNW was modeled after a different Swedish king named Gustavus

    Yes, although these are reference photos anyway, and chances are they have multiple photos to base Isabella off. So who knows.

    I think it was Eric XIV he was based off of, but you're definitely right that they used a different leader as inspiration for his design. I'm certain Montezuma I is just based of the painting of Montezuma II because they liked how he looked in that painting. Or they just google searched 'Montezuma' and that's the image they got.

    The board is not a design reference. If it's not a tease for us (which is possible), it's some kind of info stand to discuss leaders and show their implementation state (as there are in-game and concept art pieces). Such board don't need accurate pics.

    It's worth mentioning that Civ VI's Montezuma has the jade nose and lip piercings from the portrait on the board, so they didn't throw it entirely out the window :lol:

    Just curious: why do you keep saying the Isabella on the board is "the wrong Isabella"? What's wrong with her?

    As far as I understood this is "Isabella of Portugal" who neither ruled Portugal nor Spain.

    Apparantly four leaders will be released as pre-order bonus and be made freely available to all "normal" buyers after 90 days. This means 22 leaders, which means the first post does not contain any tricks and is most likely correctly portraying all leaders which will show up.

    Idk, the portraits of both Montys are probably not drawn during their life time, we have no exact image of the Montys today.

    I'm too lazy to go through hundreds of pages, but have you considered that maybe Pericles is not a leader of "Greece" but "Hellas", which would open up a few other civilizations for that spot between Greece and Germany?
