Age Of Empires 4 Holy Roman Empire Civilization
The Holy Roman Empire has access to the Prelate from the Dark Age. This is a unit that can be used to build a focused economy. The Prelate increases villager efficiency and gathering rates. Prelates can also garrison relics into different buildings in order to increase their strength. Prelates can also be upgraded in order to boost the combat capabilities of military units.
The Holy Roman Empire gets discounted cannons and springalds for towers and keeps. The Landsknecht is a unit unique to the Holy Roman Empire.
