Icon Baronessa icon

Imperious and proud, the Baronessa is a woman of high stature, who is willing to do anything to get what she wants. Killing off all of her previous husbands, she obtained new titles that make her a feared woman indeed. The Baronessa is a devout diplomat and is a very difficult person to have around. She will buy you out and not even lose a dime. (+225 difficulty).[1]

She dislikes you more the more quests you complete for the Lord, Grand Vizier and the corsairs (she stays content if you complete a quest for Giacomo Garibaldi).

As an Italian woman, the Baronessa will use (and build) the Tradesman's Cog if the Venice-Addon is installed.

*The weaker/stronger modifier results from a variable number of modifiers such as fleet size, population, civilization level etc. Nomad and Envoys have no effect to the calculation (Example: if you try for the achievement 'A place in the sun', you have no peasants and thus you are almost always called weaker than the opponent).
