Prithviraj is a campaign in Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten which is depicting its namesake, Prithviraj Chauhan (c. 1166–1192), who was the ruler of Ajmer and Delhi (in India) from around 1178 until his death in 1192.
Throughout the course of the campaign, Prithviraj appears in three forms overall:
- Prithviraj (unique model; Heavy Cavalry Archer before the Definitive Edition)
- Prithvi (Crossbowman)
- Prithviraj (before the Definitive Edition) (Long Swordsman, technically Sheriff of Nottingham)
Most of the time throughout the campaign, he appears in his Heavy Cavalry Archer form.

|—In-game campaign description in Definitive Edition|
In the Definitive Edition, the campaign is substantially altered. The player color is now blue, and there are five scenarios.
With the release of Dynasties of India in 2022, the campaign was once again altered, with the new Gurjaras civilization becoming the player civilization. Various changes were also made to individual scenarios. The unit now uses foot army voice lines instead of mounted unit ones.
- Players who do not own Dynasties of India can still play this campaign, but if the scenario is saved, they cannot play the save until they get the expansion.
