Vercingetorix, yes, very true, Brennus is nowhere near Vercing. in prowess or connections, his leadership was admirable. Xerxes wouldn't be the correct choice in persia, I agree, Darius is much more likely to be the better ruler. My list: France - Charlemagne Celts - Vercingetorix Byzantium - Justinian, come on, I haven't played Byzantines because of that, I felt betrayed. Belasarius conquered under the great Justinian, and uniting all of rome again under one banner for a short time, was brilliance. Persia - Darius (duh) Egypt - Amenhotep The BIGGEST CHANGE.........Dutch to Gustolphus, as he came to their aid and saved their butts in the 30 years war.
