Civilization VI Wiki

Leaders in Civilization VI each have a fixed agenda as well as a "hidden" Agenda. As you trade, you can get gossip information, and from interaction gain more knowledge about other Leaders through espionage. For example,

  • Teddy hates other Leaders who start Wars, but loves pacifists.
  • Egypt (Cleopatra) or Norway(Harald) loves Leaders who are more aggressive or have a strong military or navy

Civilizations can have more than one leader(Greece). These leaders have access to the same units and buildings/wonders/districts, but they have different agendas and bonuses, which allows for different playstyles.
