    Most common:

    Isabella
    Justinian I
    Catherine
    Hammurabi
    Joao II

    Strange, fanatical and aggressive...I find at least one of them in nearly all of my games.

    Least common:

    Mehmed II
    Stalin
    Peter
    Washington

    I have pretty much never gotten these people in a game where I did not specifically select them to be in.

    Someone explained in another thread that the game chooses the civs first, then the leaders. That's why every civ has an equal chance to be in your game, but if a civ has more than one leader, each individual leader of that civ has a smaller chance to be chosen. That's why we see Shaka and Montezuma so often, while Roosevelt or Washington are less common.

    Of course a lot depends on how many games you play. Even 50 games are very few given the large number of leaders in BtS.

    Least common : Catherine. Since BTS I've only seen her once, and that was because I specifically picked her to be in the game.

    Most common : all the pesky ones I don't want to see.

    I"d love to see one game of mine without Ragnar. Must be luck of the Draw I guess.

    Interesting you mention that, bddp--I also almost never see Victoria in my games. Liz and Churchill fairly often, but Vicky? Almost never.

    Joao, Suryavarman, Sitting Bull, Bismark, Saladin, and Hammurabi seem to show up in a lot of my games lately.

    Five of those are the only leaders of their civilization.

    I hardly ever see Pericles unless I choose him, which I do often since I don't like Alexander. Hannibal, Shaka and Mansa Musa seem the most common in my games. I seem to get Stalin the most of the Russian leaders.

    I've had Shaka, Ragnar and Bismarck show up most often. They usually start to outstrip me in tech trading and territory if I'm not on my toes and moving quickly to finish wonders and/or fence off key resources.

    I've seldom seen Lincoln or Louis XIV as an AI civ, perhaps because I haven't played 50 games in a row yet. Perhaps after I get the new PC and can play Civilization IV with all eye candy enabled...

    Is it just me, or is there a hidden modifier that comes into play when choosing AIs?

    Ex: Charlemagne cannot be in game because Julius caesar is, and vice versa

    Most : Isabella

    Least : Charlemagne ( Thank god )

    I almost never see Victoria or DeGaulle. In fact, I often forget they're even in the game.

    Louis XIV is in almost every game but never De Gaul or Nappy (I dont think Ive ever played against him post Warlords).
    Also I always seem to get Kublai Kahn in every Archapelego game I get

    Probably my mind playing tricks, but I seem to get the BtS leaders much more often than the vanilla ones.
