The Ethiopians civilization's music theme in the Definitive Edition

The Ethiopians are a civilization exclusive to Historical Battles in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition. They appear in the Christopher Da Gama's Expedition scenario.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Apparently, the Ethiopians were a civilization that would normally be playable in the Definitive Edition (outside of the Scenario Editor) due to the fact that it is a very complete civilization in its development (they have a unique variation for the Villager, unique military units, unique architectural variation and unique buildings, there are texture files in the game files for the Home City UI button and Postgame flag, and have a music theme), unlike other civilizations that appear in just one campaign scenario.
    • With the announcement of the African expansion, Ethiopians might actually become playable, as one of the shown civilizations uses an identical flag to the one used by the Ethiopians in the scenario.
  • The Ethiopian flag shown in the game is the Tricolor of Pennants that was used between 1881–1889 by the Ethiopian Empire.
    • However - as this design is non-rectangular - the Home City shipment icon, civilization selection screen, and post-game leaderboards all use a rectangular flag similar to the flag of Ethiopia used between 1897–1914, without the "ም" on the central stripe.
