Female Generals?
I bet most of you have seen the new panoramic published on Rome 2 website showing the campaign map from a spot near the Alps. You can see several cities and armies around but what surprised me the most was seeing an army represented by a woman. Will some factions have female generals as well as male ones? I guess the Boudicca tribe can have female generals... which factions do you thing could have female generals? Romans and Greeks were way too sexist from what I know to have female generals and Egyptians had female Pharaos but I don't think they had female generals.

The woman holding the spear.. is an agent :P Other than the agents I dont see any females with armies unless you mean the long haired men.

I doubt we'll see any female generals but I havnt seen anything saying owt about it.

i guess it would be nice for change maybe, but i've never heard a female being a General nor being in the army. the women always did the dishes, served food, and much more.

The Iceni are in the game, and they are most famous for their rebellion led by Boudica, a female leader.

True :p I guess she's an agent as she doesn't old any banner :p Sorry for the confusion, but even though I think Iceni could have female generals as they had Boudica

It just might be hard to give the player the option whether you want a female or male general, I dont see em doing it. You never know though.

Why is that a reply to me? I said that she was an agent?

I may be forgetting something, but what about the Cleopatra video? will she be making an appearance and if so, as a general?

Never heard of a female general (ex: Boudica) they have female agents, but they should have female faction leaders, because their were gueens back then (ex:pharoahs

Rome 2 will it be political corect or History? Female Generals really? Two country's have used woman in large scale and that was when thier back was against the wall. The only country that has a active force is the PC usa and it will prove to be a mistake, That is if we are ever challenged in a real way. I.E. lose control of the sky's which we have owned since 1944 ish. They will lower standards. So the PC can ruin our armed service's which is what is going on today.

I wouldnt be surprised if they put a female unit or two for some factions, they did warrior nuns and the onna bushi for shogun 2 and some of the tribal factions are fairly well known for their fearce women, be fun to see a female general though like people have suggested boudica.
