After a considerable time in production, the long ago promised new version of Age of Chivalry: Hegemony has finally arrived! It adds five new countries - Florence, Milan, Venice, Liège, and Brandenburg - each with unique features and distinctive character.

Teutonic Order fortress

Command Italian Condottieri and Liègeois Haidroits, Brandenburger Junkers or Venetian Stradiots. Construct magnificent monuments, such as the church of St Mark of Venice, the Duomo of Florence or the St Lambert cathedral of Liège.

Florentine Guild Hall

Take a stand when advancing your country through the centuries: as Milan, will you favour the Lombard League or the rise of the Visconti Signoria? As Venice, will you look to the sea or the land? As Liège, will you side with the rebellious citizenry or the ruling bishops? Or read about each country in the history section.


The eighteen original countries have not been neglected, either. Many units have new graphics and many more building graphics have been added while some old graphics have been improved. Some countries have been rebalanced after much testing and a new AI is now included which poses much more of a challenge than the old AI ever did. Furthermore, many new objects have been included for scenario designers to use.

As said a few times before:
Unfortunately it's not possible to port this to HD, for reasons I'll explain below. On the plus side, it's still possible to get the original game quite cheaply in places like Amazon. Age of Chivalry includes the Userpatch, which makes the original game fully playable even on modern systems.

Age of Chivalry already has more civs than AoE2HD, which means it can't be ported there (as unlike the original game, HD doesn't support adding new civs) and with the upcoming patch it will also have more civs than the Forgotten expansion for HD, so porting it there won't be possible either. (HD is unfortunately far less mod friendly than the original, for example it doesn't let you use custom user interfaces and the Workshop system can't handle extensive file replacements like you'd get with a mod this size.)

Glad to hear you like it! There's a great many more countries missing from Age of Chivalry. I've always opted to go for a narrower geographical scope while paying more attention to each locality than you normally see in medieval games (excluding the Paradox games). As a result some of the settings are quite in-depth, with multiple factions from the Holy Roman Empire, France, the British Isles and Italy in particular, while leaving out some others. This makes it a little more unique in scope than many other games out there, and sets it apart from the original. If you really do want to play as one of the Spanish kingdoms, or the Ottoman Empire, there's luckily many other games which give you the opportunity!

Make sure you click the right icon. Age of Chivalry uses a different shortcut than AoK itself.

As you can see on the most recent map in the image section above I'm working on adding the Papal States, Naples and Hungary.

Great mod. But I have a problem: when I launch the mod and i try a single-player game they give me this message: "You must insert the Age of Empires II:Conquerors Expansion CD to play a single-player game, and then restart", but my original game works perfectly, and I have installed the 1.0c patch, so I can't understand where the problem is. If someone can help me, I will be very grateful.

What version of the game did you have installed normally? There are some versions - including the Gold / Collector's Edition - that already have the 1.0c patch installed. If you then install the patch again, it will give you this problem. This can be fixed by reinstalling the game, not installing the patch, then installing Age of Chivalry. Hope this helps!

I find out that this situation is caused by a problem on my PC. Thank you for your help!!
