    America, Arabia, Aztecs, Brazil, China, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Unknown "G" Civ, Greece, India, Japan, Kongo, Ottomans or Persia, Poland, Rome, Russia, Scythians, Spain (twice?), Sumeria. Alphabetical order so the one in between Germany and Greece a has to start with "G" too.

    But not if it's a mistake or one added later. That looks like a separate sheet of paper and the one last in that page

    It's alphabetical and by that logic Spain (Philip II) and Sumeria were the last though of and added since they both on separate paper with the center row.

    In my opinion the only serious contenders for B5 are:

    -Ghana
    -Gorkha
    -Goths
    -misplaced Georgia

    All other candidates seem too farfetched to me.

    I forgot about Gorkha, never the less, they would just call it Nepal because Firaxis doesn't care.

    No, he means they could have forgotten to put Greece on the first page and instead tacked them on at the beginning of the second. And the Civ that's supposed to be between Greece and India alphabetically is out of order and sitting at B5. Get it?

    Right. That's like the only other option other than Germany/Greece having an alternate leader.

    So since we haven't managed to find out who it is by searching for Gs, lets look for H and I civs. Might as well try something new.

    Sorry Spain will not have two leaders.

    If you look, the top 10, bottom 10, and bottom 2 are all on separate pages. They weren't forgotten, they just put the portraits on landscape and made 'em large.

    Yes, thank you for the productive comment along with useful logic backing up your claim.

    Right...they made the pages one at a time. So they might have made the first one, realized they got the order wrong, and then said "eh, whatever".

    Better than nothing to go off of.

    I don't think that is the case, but I pulled this list from the EU4 wiki. It has a lot of highly unlikely and redundant options, and it only covers the game's timeframe, but here it is:

    Germany
    ---
    Germiyan
    Golden Horde
    Golkonda
    Gondwana
    Gotland
    Granada
    Great Britain
    ---
    Greece
    ---
    Guarani
    Guge
    Gujarat
    Gwalior
    Haasa
    Habsan
    Hadoti
    Haida
    Hainaut
    Haiti
    Haixi
    Hamburg
    Hannover
    Harar
    Hatakeyama
    Hausa
    Hejaz
    Hesse
    Hindustan
    Hobyo
    Hojo
    Holland
    Holstein
    Holy Roman Empire
    Hormuz
    Hosokawa
    Hsenwi
    Huai
    Hungary
    Huron
    Huyla
    Iceland
    Ichma
    Ikeda
    Illiniwek
    Imagawa
    Imereti
    Imerina
    Inca
    ---
    India

    Some nice options: Guarani, Haida, Hausa, Hungary, Inca

    There's no empty place between Greece and India.

    This is more similar to Ottomans instead of Turkey or Siam instead of Thailand, rather than Persia instead of Achaemenids, IMO, so I think there is a possibility that they picked the archaic name instead of the modern one.

    Ottomans and Siam stand because they are readily recognisable in western media though. Gorkha is vastly less recognisable than Nepal, so I can't see any way it's justified. I think this is more of a majapahit / Indonesia situation

    If Greece and B5 are out of order, there is. Might as well give it a shot.

    Is it possible that B5 is Victoria under Great Britain and B2 is someone else? I say this because when Victoria introduces herself it's as Queen of Great Britain.

    I'm wondering if they changed their mind at the last minute to make it England like in all the past Civs.

    If we assume B5 is out of alphabetical order, that could be anything - don't need to search before India, but C1 is quite sure shot of Pericles.

    I dont think that the devs are unable to follow the alphabet order correctly.

    So if they used it (as it looks like to nearly 100%), I do not think they made a misplacement there.

    Imho, there really are only 3 possibilitires can are realistic:

    1.) it indeed is another CIV between Ger and Gre. In this case, and considering the probably white skin color of the portrait, I think only the Goths and the Golden Horde would be possible options. All others are even more unlikely to chose for a vanilla civ (even these both are, considering that we already have Germany, and it is unlikely they use Golden Horde instead of Mongolia, especially since already Scythia is in place)

    2.) the overview also contains multiple leaders from the first DLCs. This could be valid both for Germany/Greece and Spain. Somehow this option would surprise me though, as I wouldnt see any of those three as such an early pick for a second leader.
    Also, the possible secondary leaders dont look like being from a totally different time period, which I would have expected if a second leader would have been chosen, at least in cases of Germany or Spain.

    3.) there are two leaders of Germany/Greece and Spain, because at the time of the print it was not finally decided which one to take. Maybe they had 2 different concepts that they both liked and it was still open.


    Of these three options, I would tend to 3, with a small chance of the Goths being in the rooster.

    or it's Victoria and they were toying with the idea of putting her in as Great Britain rather than England...
