    For the first time in Civilization franchise history, we have a leader able to lead two different civilizations!

    Eleanor, duchess of Aquitaine, was queen consort of France from 1137 – 1152, followed by England from 1154 – 1189. She was one of the most influential figures of the Middle Ages, thanks to her vast land holdings inherited at a young age, making her one of the most sought-after brides of the time.

    She was a leader in the Second Crusade and is credited with establishing many of the royal court’s chivalric rituals– the social codes rooted in Christianity that guided the behavior of knights and women of high social standing.

    Eleanor Unique Ability – Court of Love

    Great Works in Eleanor’s cities each cause a loss of Loyalty per turn in nearby foreign cities. A city that leaves another civilization due to a loss of Loyalty and is currently receiving the most Loyalty per turn from Eleanor skips the Free City step and instantly joins her civilization.

    That is one strong ability!

    I imagine it working better with France than England though

    I love the animations. I also love that her ability is the same for France and England.

    I predict the livestream will talk a ton about modding.

    I hope someone can mod some of the current leaders to play multiple civs.

    They said "how will you rule". They missed the chance to say "who will you rule".

    6/10, nice try, Firaxis.

    Hmm, Elanor's as France will be fun to use and absorb lots of cities near your borders

    I definitely like her better than Catherine for a French cultural victory.

    For England I'll have to test her, but I wonder if she can help "colonize" other cities on continents different from your capital's.

    So we've 4 Culture focused Civs in GS yet no Science focused Civs? I'm disappointed TBH, I really hope there is a 3rd expansion now. (with Babylon being a part of it)

    Though her ability to exert more loyalty on nearby cities with more Great Works is a nice mechanic.

    True, though I will be playing her with the reworked England first. Looks fun :)

    Oh wow! That is one cool LUA and bar the name definitely not what I expected. And I love both her looks.

    I'm really digging this one!

    That LUA would have been awesome with British Museums.

    1) Those models are great

    2) no free cities, well that is a possible game changer if played well

    That's a big "meh" from me in terms of her ability, unless they've drastically changed the loyalty mechanism (especially compared to Victoria and Catherine). The leaders models look good, though.

    Yeah RIP 6 space British Museum (though I don't know if artifacts count for her ability actually)

    Interesting, though more synergy with France than England.
