    But could also be men in turbans or keffiyeh.

    You could be right.

    EDIT:
    I retract. The tweet said new civ and leader. So it isn't Eleanor. Most likely Ottomans

    As I said, I'm playing devils advocate here. Right now, most clues point to ottomans.

    Looks like a mosque in the background imo, typical near eastern arches and colour scheme.

    Looks like the Hanging Gardens to me, which means it is a surprise reveal of Portugal!

    Immediately after reading this post I only had two thoughts or rather emotions, the first one was: this is seriously OTT, and the second one was more of a groan: O', MAN...
    ...wait a minute...:eek:... now I think I know what you really meant by all this! Well done! :goodjob:

    I can see great deal of resemblance to many of the courtyards at Topkapi Palace (and looking for its pictures makes me angrier with my guide at Istambul, he kept us in the Grand Bazaar 4 or 5 hours and then we got little time to see Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque and when we passed in front of Topkapi he just said it was an old museum :mad:).

    I guess it could be Fontevraud Abbey, but if we take the leaked portraid of Eleanor, she is younger depicted, and she lived there in her older years, close to her death.

    Yes, but we have the ottoman in the livestream & the announcement that a civ will be revealed. Of course those could mislead on purpose but I have to admit that's strong evidence.

    [...]

    Maybe Eleanor can also be used as leader of the Ottomans :D

    I am eagerly anticipating the first look today. I hope it will be another Civ that has big strengths but some notable weaknesses as well. (like Maori and Mali)

    My speculation for the Ottomans is the Janissary UU, the unique governor in place of the infrastructure, and some trade route/naval bonus. (Not sure who the governor will be though)
