The Holy Roman Empire is a civilization shaped by a powerful infantry army, made stronger by the support of their religious unit — the Prelate.

The Holy Roman Empire in Age of Empires IV spans the years 936-1517 CE. The empire, centered in a region that comprises modern Germany, claimed to be the rightful successor to the ancient Roman Empire. Its emperors controlled central Europe with a stalwart infantry of exuberant Landsknechte, and aimed to capture the center of the Christian world itself: Rome.

In Age IV, the Holy Roman Empire stands out through their early access to religious units, available from the First Age onwards. Through careful use of the Prelate, players will be able to buff Villagers, speeding up their economic growth.

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. [1]


Unique Units[edit]

  • Prelate: The Prelate is a support unit that heals and inspires nearby armies, granting them benefits.
  • Landsknecht: The Landsknecht is a light infantry unit with a two-handed sword, adept at area-of-effect damage.
