Francisco de Orellana (c. 1500 - November 1546) was a Spanish Conquistador best known for being the first European to navigate the entire length of the Amazon River. In Age of Empires II: The Forgotten, Orellana is the protagonist of the El Dorado campaign, and he also appears as a must-survive hero unit in every scenario.
Unit[edit | edit source]
Francisco de Orellana has the appearance of a Conquistador but a unique icon and better stats. He is affected by all upgrades and bonuses that affect ranged ranged cavalry and gunpowder units. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Orellana's icon in The Forgotten shows him wearing an eyepatch, referencing how Orellana lost an eye during a battle in Ecuador, prior to the events of El Dorado. However this is not the case in the Definitive Edition.
