Amanitore: (Nubian language) Her voice is impressive and very expressive, reminding me of Adele, although I do not have any knowledge of the language. Alexander: (Attic greek) I want to punch him, when I see his twisted face lol. But his voice acting sounds young and energetic, fine and significantly iconic to me. Catherine di Medici: (French and Italian) As a italian learner myself, I find her Italian accent quite recognizable so her voice acting in both French and Italian does satisfy me. Although a better example can be presented by CdM in la reine margot (acted by Virna Lisi, she used a lot of rrrr in her speech, which is surely un-french, so instead of reine [H'ein] she would pronounce reine [Rrrr-ein], an obvious italian accent.) Example Cleopatra: (Middle Egyptian) Maybe I have heard too much Arabic egyptian. I find her accent doesn't sound very egyptian and she didn't speak too fluently (some unnaturally pause in her lines). Cleo should have a more charming voice. Cyrus: (archaic Persian) He sounds sexy, I meant, his voice-acting is really impressive to hear. The rise and fall of his tones is perfect. Frederick: (middle high German) His voice fits Barbarossa. I think he sounds quite modest and he sounds really threatening in his agenda dis-approval. Gandhi: (Hindi and English) He is certainly sounding indian. This one sounds to calm to me, as his tone is quite flat. Gilgamesh: (Akkdian with Sumerian words) The great psycho in the game. He is really impressive, even without his bro-like smile. Gitarja: (old Javanese) She sounds epic and fits my impressions of ladies in Indonesian/Malayian TV dramas. Gorgo: (Doric dialect of Greek) She sounds majestic and somehow masculine. Listening to her defeat lines merits my ears. Harald Hardrada: (old Norse) His tongue rolling (rrrrrrrr) scares me. But he sounds naughty and malicious as a viking so I think he did quite well. Hojo Tokimune: (classical Japanese) I don't know Japanese so I cannot comment on his usage of words. Certainly he is speaking well pronounced Japanese. But he is far too flat, not as intimating as those emperors/ shoguns in Japanese TV dramas. Normally nobility will rise their voice a bit to show their formality in the speech. Jadwiga: (Polish) Emmm.... She chills me when she speaks at the first time. I can't link her voice to a queen. But I become used to it after I heard enough times of her voice-acting. Jayavarman VII: (Khmer) Fluent and expressive, though the language may sound a bit harsh to ears. John Curtin: (Australian english) Sounds fine to me. Montezuma: (Nahautl) Expressive, but not as impressive as Monty in Civ V, although Monty in V used some spanish loan words. Mvemba a Nzinga (Lingala) He sounds calm as well, in every circumstances. And his tone is not rising and falling much at most time. Pedro II: (Brazilian Portugese) I still find Pedro from V is more impressive due to the higher pitch of his tone. Peter (Russian): Standard Russian teacher announcer/narrator tone. I find his voice acting really russian as I have been watching a lot of russian TV dramas. I think he is voiced by some news-reporter or radio narrator? Pericles: (Athenian greek) Impressive voice. But he really sounds calm in his acting. Maybe its his character? Phillip II: (Spanish) He sounds spanish to me, although some say that he has a Mexican accent. But I can't distinguish them haha, although I also learn some Spanish in University. Qin Shi Huang: (Mandarin) As a chinese speaker myself m, he is certainly speaking mandarin correctly. But his accent is a bit strange in some of his words... and Mandarin didn't even exist in Qin's time... Anyway he does sound fine and fitting to Qin. Saladin: (Arabic) He sounds like a mentor. Although I didn't learn arabic, I know that Arabic can sound harsh in many people's tonuges. So I think that he is doing fine. I like Saladin's voice in Kingdom of Heaven more. Teddy: (American Eng) Fine for me. But his lines when being attacked is not impressive enough. Tomyris: (Ossetic) She sounds great and deep as a queen. Compare her voice to Jadwiga.... Trajan: (Classical Latin) I am glad that he doesn't speak with a Catholic latin accent. He sounds great and much better than Augustus in Civ V. Victoria: (English with british accent) She sounds calm and modest. Maybe some don't like her voice... but her "we are not amused" is certainly epic. Not yet including the DLC leaders, we can add them here when they are fully released. (And I find that I did watch a lot of dramas in different languages, hmp, I wonder why.) Edit: Adding the DLC leaders. Tamar (Georgian): A deep voice for another queen in central Asia. Although she sounds like Tomyris' long lost sister, Tamar's acting doesn't impress me too much. Is it supposed to be spoken so slow in Georgian? It seems like she prolongs every word to an extend that I once thought she was an old auntie without looking at the scene. Seondeok (Korean, a modern one with some classical words I guess): Her voice acting is firm and fueled with strength, rising and falling naturally, although not sounding too intimidating like the korean news reporters. The problem is her in game model. Is it necessary for her to do this duck face? Spoiler Her facial expressions and eyebrows are too much : View attachment 489489 Poundmaker (Cree language): He seems to pause a bit at every syllable in his lines, like he is reading a poem or sth. I am not sure how Cree language sounds like but those pauses do not sound too natural for me. Shaka (isiZulu?): He sounds natural and fluent. And he is surely rising and falling in his dialogues, although I feel a lack of enthusiasm in his sentences. At least, not a warlord type of feel. Genghis Khan (Mongolian): Calm and threatening, like an office boss rather than the steppe warlord. Although I am not sure of his language accuracy, Mongolians usually can speak with a more fluctuating tone in my impressions. Chandragupta (Sanskrit? Or other varieties of indian dialect?) : With strength and full of certainty, Chandragupta's words are well delivered and rightly toned for me. He doesn't sound like a warmonger, but a rightful ruler of great authority, as if he is declaring everything in name of justice. (With reference to indian dramas, like Mahabharata, he sounds really well.) Wilhelmina (Dutch): Ohhhhh, hello auntie Wilhelmina, how is the weather today? Actually she sounds pretty similar to the real queen Wihelmina, taking the Radio Oranje as reference. Thus I think she delivers the lines well. Robert Bruce (Middle English with Scotish accent): His voice doesn't fit his age nor his look. But apart from that, he delivers too calmly as well ( he sounds unnaturally without rise and fall even when he was DOW-ed and kicks the chair). However, his defeated lines are epic and certainly giving the grief of losing a country. Lautaro (Mapudugun): He sounds really young, which is fitting to his character. Energetic, rebelling, full of questions (half of his lines are ending with questions)... sounding as if he is a rebellious kid talking back to his mother. Maybe a deeper voice will shape him better as a leader in his early adulthood. Currently he sounds too young, like 16-17 college boys.
