Concentrating on the late medieval period, Age of Chivalry: Hegemony replaces or significantly alters each of the civilizations in the original game, while adding a number of new ones, allowing the player to control Central and Western European states. Many new units and technologies have been added and gameplay dynamics have been changed considerably in this complete overhaul of Age of Empires II.

As in the present version, you can unlock the Teutonic Order by playing as Saxony and then unlocking the Teutonic Order in the 14th century at the Town Hall. This will allow you to train Teutonic Knights on foot and mounted, will give you new militia infantry, light cavalry and archery units, new technologies, and a new castle. It's a completely different experience from the normal gameplay of Saxony.

Are there any plans for a Hungarian kingdom? And are you in anyway interested in doing one of the Spanish kingdoms?

Planning this already took a lot of time. I did consider adding Hungary, Naples and/or the Papal States/Rome for a while but decided against it in the end for various reasons (one of them being I want to complete this at some point).

Adding Spanish countries would definitely be too much work as this would require adding many to properly simulate Iberian history in this period.

Hi, the Holy Roman Empire was not a single political entity. A lot of states in Age of Chivalry already represent it: Austria, Bavaria, Bohemia, Genoa, Guelders, Friesland, Saxony, Savoy, and the Swiss Confederation were all imperial states, and so were (of the new states) Florence, Milan and Liège. Burgundy and Flanders were also partly located in the Empire.

With three of these states (Austria, Bavaria, Bohemia) you can opt to become emperor through policy decisions in the 14th century, which will unlock the imperial knight, the Reichsritter.

That is correct. But in the 1430s Brabant was inherited by the Burgundians (or even in 1406 if you count Anthony of Burgundy, the brother of the duke of Burgundy). In the same period the Burgundians conquered Holland which is why Brabant, Holland, Hainaut and parts of northern France are all marked as Burgundian. Flanders was also owned by the Burgundians - since the 1380s - but I added this in as a separate country because it remained less pliant, often rebelling against Burgundian power.

Also Brabant was ruled by many more dukes than just Jan. ;)

There were around 1000 states in Europe around 1300. 22 are in Age of Chivalry. That doesn't mean I hate the remaining 978.
