    I was looking through Civilopedia, and realized "she" is actually a "he." That came as a surprise.

    Wah!

    He is the Fatima Whitbread of men.

    But seriously... it's quite obvious he's a man.

    :) not only he was a man, but he was quite a violent and ruthless ruler back then. But at some point, after a really bloody massacre when he saw the mountains of dead bodies and rivers of blood, he was so disguised, that something broke inside of him and he became a peace-lover and peaceful builder for the rest of his life.

    :twitch: How did you not realize this? Not to be rude, but seriously. It's quite obvious.

    Long hair doth not make a girl.

    But... but, he's so peaceful. And he has long hair. And he always gets invaded. And he always has his hands together and he's bowing to you. What the hell?

    There's a picture of him, you can probably find it on google images, where he looks disturbingly like a woman, but in this game, he looks like a dude. He has stubble.

    "You have long hair, does that make you a woman?"

    "You have a wooden leg, does that make you a table?"

    Bonus points to whoever knows the origin of that.

    He is considered to be the next most successful king in Asia and is descent of Chandra Gupta Maurya, the king who won against Alexander the Great. Here is the link about him on wikipedia, he i also called Ashoka. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashoka.
    Soon after the massacre, he converted to Buddhism and preached it through out his life.

    I have to admit, I've found myself referring to him as "she" a few times (even after I confirmed to myself a long while ago that he's a "he"). He's certainly one of the most effeminately drawn male leaders in the game, so if you're not familiar with the leader from history, I don't see making the mistake as being that unreasonable. Or maybe I'm just justifying myself. :p
