Why is the protagonist female?
Why did you have to pull off a SJW stunt there?
Name one famous knight of the 8th-12th century that was female.
There was none.
So why is the knights protagonist (and possibly that of the other 2 factions) female?
Is the femnazi faction that strong? Did you speculate on free publicity and a scandal "oooh the knightly warrior is a female alarm alarm"
BS and you know it.

Joan of Arc was a military leader that never actually achieved knighthood, She was not even considered a warrior, She never actually fought with her own two hands. Joan of Arc is one of many female leaders that gets blown way out of proportion for enterainment perposes.

Cleopatra VII Philapator, Twosret, Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, Sobekneferu and MerNeith are all female pharoas that came into power through variouse forms of political backstabbing or inheritance. They were not capable of going head to head with men, They were even less likely to survive if they tried in anchient times. The women that were succeeded did so by being suductive and manipulative, Not by being agressive and disagreeable.

Poland is the most "equal" nation in the world in regards to the TWO GENDERS, Yet they have the largest gender gaps in S.T.E.M related fields vs humanitarian related fields.

you can change gender, only the tutorial has lady warden, campaign nearly only has men

You can change the gender can't you? My warden is a male.

In the story you can play as either male or female as the knights and Vikings, the Samurai have a female(Ayu) and a male(The Emperor's Champion) protagonist.
EDIT: You are playing as a knight, not a famous knigth, get over it snowflake.

If you want historical accuracy, I wonder how the vikings, knights and samurai all came in contact together, since those never inhabited the same areas at the same period.
Also, if you want realism, knights would just cut through vikings.
The game didn't claim to be accurate ; it presented a hypothetical setting which allows female protagonists.

I think he means Antagonist... in which case, it's not an SJW stint. SJW stint would be having the males be weak arses and all the strong characters female.

Apollyon is one among many characters, the majority of which ARE male. Just because she's the main antagonist doesn't make this some political discussion of a game... it's just one female character in a very balanced game (genderwise... the game is NOT balanced).

We all know this game is an SFW infested ♥♥♥♥. Dominion is dominated by Shaman, a FEMALE HERO. Nobushi is an S-Tier hero and guess what, Nobushi is female, Valkyrie is also female and she's very good, so is Peacekeeper.
I'm pretty sure you get the sarcasm in this comment.

Who are the notable female characters in the game? That are not the version of the protagonist? Apollyon, Siv and?

This is the same type of guy that's angry as ♥♥♥♥ that my people are portrayed in any capacity in any WW1 / WW2 video game.

I wonder how he feels about the black Achilles in the Troy series.

*yikes*
