Marie d'Artois
Character details
Difficulty Medium
Traits Aggressive
Icon Marie icon

Marie d'Artois claims that angels speak to her, telling her what to do. This aggressive island monger will own the entire map given the chance. Her quick expansion and aggressive nature gives her an upper hand, not to mention her war-like nature. Is she "hearing from God... Or maybe another force?" (+150 difficulty).[1]

She dislikes everything that has to do with oriental settlements, the grand vizier, and the Sultanate.
