Spoiler : Cathy got Buddhism and Judaism, chose Buddhism as a state religion but spread Jewish missionaries to Shaka, who is still cautious despite religious differences and border tensions from my gold+iron city. My only source of horse is far to the west in a former barb city. Shaka and Monty are WHEEOHRN, but I'm second to Shaka in power and have more military techs than him. Monty is just crazy, but he's too far away and too weak. Brilliant starting position, btw.
