Get ready to clean your rooms, buckos. Because, it's about to get real.

This mod reduces the overall percentage (%) chance of female politicians and generals.

This mod was made after some research into the frequency of women in power in the Classical time period. This mod is not meant to belittle women, but attempt to historically put them in their societal role at the time. And female rulers are incredibly rare. There are few known instances of a woman leading armies, with only a few more examples of women in political power (usually through marriage).

* Does not change starting characters and leaders (so females are more common at the beginning of the game). This mod would have to be a huge overhaul of the starting positions, which would make it incompatible with TPY and faction mods.

* Latest Patch (November, 2020) Compatible.

* Works with all mods that do not edit the db's tables for female general/politician frequency.

*Not compatible with DEI. Divide Et Impera uses its own values for the percentage chance of politicians and generals. Some day I might make a submod, but DEI does a good enough job in which I don't find this mod necessary.

Patch 1.1 is here! Not only can female rulers now use their skills, they are also given traits if they are the faction leader.

Enjoy the mod!

It's sad, it sounded like an interesting mod.

Great Romans was last updated in 2015. It's bound to have some issues, especially when used with other mods. It's a miracle it even works. The DB tables it uses for modding are very different than the last update for Rome 2.

I think it was "Great Romans"

What mod was it?
Hannibal Magus Jul 10 @ 10:56am 
Lol. Indeed. But to confirm it was a conflicting mod that caused that strange bug. I deactivated the other mod and patriarchy mod is working normally again.

You know it's a patriarchy when the men start marrying each other :D

Almost certainly not a problem with this mod, but rather a conflict with the large number of other mods I have running. But funny bug.

No females at all. All male characters appear married to ... other males =D

That's ridiculous. Sadly, I can't add back historically authenticate characters without altering the startpos.esf file.

Thanks, hope this works. I always execute female generals but this should save me the hassle

I once complained on Rome II Steam forums that random made-up chicks (like Neferukekashta who's the queen of Cyrenaica in the game) replace known historical people (like Magas of Cyrene, the real life king of Cyrene) in Grand Capmaign. CA removed the post and warned me that my behaviour wasn't acceptable and that repeated 'offenses' will result in a ban
