Strengths[]

The Holy Roman Empire is a powerful infantry-based civilization, able to fend off opponents with several options for defensive turtling. Facing them in battle will require careful consideration: the Holy Roman Empire can recover quickly from attacks and their Landsknechte’s devastating area-of-effect capability is sure to make advances against them difficult.

Economically, the Holy Roman Empire has a keen advantage: their Prelate, a unique religious unit, can increase villagers’ gather rate and help ramp up their economy quickly.

Defeating the Holy Roman Empire is no easy task. Their structures are highly durable and difficult to destroy, further enhanced by upgrades improving their strength. Outposts, Towers and Keeps can garrison Relics for bonus armor and damage, making the Holy Roman Empire a truly impenetrable civilization.
