Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent of the Ottomans
Prince Willem van Oranje of the Dutch
nm, my bad
Just to be clear, this picture is of Stadhouder Willem I (Stadtholder William I), also known as Willem de Zwijger (William the Silent). So it's not William III (who was stadtholder of the Netherlands as well as king of England) or King William I, who became king of the "United Netherlands" (Netherlands+Belgium+Luxemburg) in 1815 after the final defeat of Napoleon.
(in C3C it was abit unclear, because the Dutch leader was referred to as "King William", but William I of Orange never held the title of King)
Firaxis did a good job with the graphics
Does anyone think that the Oranje leaderhead looks somewhat like a modern pic of Bob Dylan?
Now you mention it!
It looks indeed more like Bob Dylan than Willem van Oranje. Probably because it doesn't look like Willem van Oranje at all.
Why'd they change Willem's eyes from blue to brown?
Maybe because his eyes were brown?
EDIT: I do admit the mustache is a bit too long, his hair too dark and his face too skinny. William had a beard, not a mustache and brown, not black hair. Also he became slightly bloated when he aged not skinnier. That said it's just an artist's interpretation and overall it's pretty well done.
If it was Bob Dylan, what would his intro line be ?
A hard rains gonna fall...
You gotta serve somebody...
Next lame joke ,
If he's William the Silent we may have a new 'refuses to speak' time , like 30 turns
Hmm... What would his traits be? Creative/Charsimatic? UU: Folksinger (replaces Great Artist) UB: Newport Festival Stage (replaces theatre)?
It is a cartoon, so it won't look exactly like what the real people look like.
But Willem is one of the most worst in the game.
Separate names with a comma.
