    Yup, it's Georgia. Looked up "Georgian Weapons and found this



    eta: J51 sniped me, but here's the image for you to see three Georgian knuckledusters.

    "One knows a lion by its claws and Tamar by her actions." is also a famous quote spoken about Tamar.

    The shield is from a christian land, and made for mounted combat. The sword is more oriental. Definitely medieval. The lion could be anybody, it's a common descriptor. No idea what that last thing is.

    I really do hope it's Georgia. I mean Scotland would be fine, and far preferable to the "Celts", but Georgia would be a really new interesting region to represent.

    Edit: And... what do you know, all but confirmed now!

    Oh dear, Georgia is really happening... I would've preferred the Celts... Ehh, I've been fond of the additions up until now, doesn't hurt to have one less than amazing.

    Yeah, after googling Ethiopian shields I retract my first guess. Must have been wishful thinking.
    So, most likely Celts/Scots or Georgia ?

    Well looks like the meme is real now especially with those Georgian weapons.

    Tamar of Georgia seems to be all but confirmed, and I am honestly glad Firaxis went this route!

    But wait, what leader will we use as a meme now?

    I'm also fairly confident it's Georgia. The sword matches images of Georgian swords (and definitely not Scottish), the Wikipedia article about kite shields specifically mentions Georgia and Tamar was once described as a lion. Not sure about the bracelet thing though!

    "Swords, shields, and lions" is about as generic as you can get. The fact that we can still manage to do as well as we are in less than 15 is nothing short of spectacular.

    Lion and Christian symbolism reminds me of Haile Selassie...

    But that sword is definitely Georgian...

    To be fair, Georgia is an extremely worthy candidate, meme or no meme.

    Although it's hard to imagine their inclusion isn't at least partly influenced by these very forums... :)

    Yes, fellow Civfanatics, it's happening whether you like Georgia/Tamar or not! :D

    This cheers me up after the Cree controversy.
