    It is definitely possible that the tweet was, as you say, hinting at the inclusion of the Ottomans, but not necessarily of Mehmed II. So if someone wants to find an image match, perhaps the best bet is to look through pictures of all of the Ottoman rulers.

    Bottom picture...
    should we try making a pastebin with all leaders that were painted with it?

    Sebastian would be an even worse choice for Portugal than Maria I... and that's saying something.

    There is certainly no lack of Ottoman leaders that could have a match:

    To me, C5 is wearing a mongol hat. The turban people are saying is just the picture's background (a cloud, the moon, whatever). I don't mind Ottomans not being included in vanilla, I feel like the Mongols are more likely to be picked above them.

    :lol:

    This forum is called Civ Fanatics for a reason after all.

    We could try... if we follow a strict selection criteria:

    1. Alphabetical order. From Spain to Sumeria (Spb... - Sul...)

    2. Leader dressed in a cuirass, 1600-1700 era.


    Honestly, none come to mind.

    i didn't read all the discussion, but please don't tell that B3 is Henry the IV.
    It's definitely, without no doubt possible, Catherine Medicis... On his old time.

    Do we get any more possibilities if Sumer was Ur/Uruk instead? Doubtful but... straws...

    Could this painting of Philip II match better?

    That's definitely it, the reflection line matches the image

    EDIT: ON second thought, the original image is better

    The reflection has to be broader though.

    Not really DarhStarkiller:



    During Philipp II Reign Spain controlled Portugal, Naples, Milan, Sicily and The Netherlands in Europe. Many, many overseas territories too.

    The "the empire on which the sun never sets," was first used refering to Spain under Philips II reign.

    Conquistadors and Religion mate, that's all we are getting from either Isabella or Philip.

    I see that C5 blur as a side portrait of someone with a helmet, a bit like in this image:

    As of E1:
    I think it is NOT Philip II

    The bending and position of the arm to the body, the white collar and the big bright colored vertical stripe (band) does not match with any of the paintings of Philip I find...

    Also, I think while the figure is turning his body to right (as we see it), his face may be turning to the opposite direction, to the left...
