Martyrdom is a technology only found in Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome. It can be researched at the temple once Iron Age is reached. To research this technology, 600 Gold is required.

Once developed, the priest gains the ability to convert an enemy unit instantly when the priest is sacrificed (press DELETE). This technology can only be used by the player. However, to some players, this technology is deemed useless since the cost for it is expensive and so is the priest.

In Campaigns or quests, this technology can be useful if an ultimate unit crucial for victory is hard to get. In an actual game it is more cost effective to use two priests to convert each enemy unit instead of researching this upgrade.
