    And his figure doesn't even seem realistic given the time period. I can't see anyone having 6 pack abs back in those days. Unless they are a slave not getting enough calories, but still working hard enough to develop core muscles.

    Chandragupta also has majestic abs, you could shred cheese on those.

    Do You know that short version of the name Jadwiga in Polish is Jaga?
    And in Poland when you say Jaga people think about either football club Jagiellonia Białystok or Baba Jaga from Slavic mythology.
    And this is how Baba Jaga looks like:

    People back in Sumeria's time was fit as heck. They were no cars, the roads sucked, and only the rich had horses. You had to walk everywhere and you had to carry everything yourself. The nobles were constantly training for war (as they had no choice) and definitely had enough food to develop 12 pack abs.

    In the ancient era, the average Greek farmer could wear 60 pounds of armor, shield, and pike and trudge 20 miles a day and fight a battle at the end of it. Everyone back then was like a Navy Seal, or they wouldn't have survived. The men were beefy and fit as f-.

    The poor in my city walk everywhere, and let me tell you they aren't fit. You'd think they wouldn't get so fat walking everywhere, but they do.

    Cleopatra is #1 in my loins. Best in series was the Civ 4 version of Isabella.

    Jadwiga is adorable in a "teenage girl" kind of way. I kind of feel protective of her in game, but I wouldn't call her "attractive" just because she's too young. I'd say Tomyris is the most attractive female leader in the game...except for that obnoxious "hmph." At least she doesn't stomp her foot and clip through her dress like Victoria. :p

    I thought the short form of Jadwiga was Jadzia? Which of course is also the name (pronounced differently) of a very attractive Trill... :love:

    That's because they have access to McDonalds and fast food restaurants, which didn't exist in ancient Sumeria and Greece.

    If you wanted food back then, you either grew it or hunted it, both of which requires strenuous physical activity.

    It’s because the poor do not have access to high quality food

    She lived to be 25. I don't think she's necessarily depicted as a teenager.

    IMO Cleopatra, Tomyris and Gitarja are the prettiest female leaders. (I have a thing for brunettes.)

    She looks about 15-16 to me. Granted, in a time period when you probably don't even hit puberty until 15-16, that probably puts her around 20, but to my modern eyes she still looks like a little girl.

    Jadwiga is definitely the cutest to me, her mannerisms are pretty fun and she's probably the most wholesome leader in a way.

    I expect Dido will be quite attractive. Overall I like almost all the leaders in both appearance and character. In my opinion a lot of the female leaders are depicted very well. I always enjoy Gitarja's sassiness too :D

    I'd like Jadwiga more if her VA didn't sound like it was recorded inside a tin can. She can definitely do with a bit more... intonation? (Jadwiga's animation is top notch though)
