The Hautevilles is a campaign in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition - Lords of the West. It is based on the exploits of the Hauteville dynasty (Italian: Altavilla), a Norman royal dynasty who rose to prominence after conquering southern Italy and establishing the Kingdom of Sicily as one of the most tolerant and progressive states in Europe at the time, as well as their participation in the First Crusade. The Hautevilles ruled until the late-12th century, after which the Kingdom of Sicily fell into the Germanic Hohenstaufen rule.

Campaign[edit | edit source]
