The Centurion is a Heavy Infantry unit in Age of Empires and Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome. They can be trained at the Academy after researching it as the ultimate upgrade of the Hoplite and Phalanx. The upgrade also requires the research Aristocracy at the Government Center. Although fairly slow, the centurion makes up for it with its high hitpoints, great attack and exceptional armor.

History Edit

The smallest tactical unit in the Roman army trusted with independent maneuver was the 100 man century. Each century was commanded by a Centurion, a veteran promoted from the ranks after demonstrating bravery, skill, discipline, and leadership. The century was roughly equivalent to the modern infantry company and the Centurion was a combination of modern infantry captain and top sergeant. Centurions were the backbone of the legions that built and defended the Roman Empire.
