The Spanish are a Western European civilization featured in the Age of Empires II: The Conquerors expansion. They are an offensive civilization with strong navy and emphasis on mobility.


The Spanish are a versatile and technologically advanced civilization. They have two unique units: the Conquistador (a mounted hand cannoneer) and the missionary (mounted Spanish monk). They are featured heavily throughout the El Cid campaign as the player civilization, although some of the scenarios featured the Saracen civilization as the one used by the player. They are also the main opponents in the Montezuma campaign, warring against the Aztec and Maya and they are also played in the Lepanto scenario. The Spanish navy is the most versatile in the game, as they have access to all naval units and technologies. In addition their Cannon Galleons benefit from the Ballistics technology, allowing their projectiles to travel faster and are more accurate. The Spanish land forces feature a standard mix of infantry and cavalry units with all such units available, except for eagle warriors and Camels. The Spanish unique technology supremacy drastically increases the combat skill of their villagers, giving Spanish players the opportunity to use villagers to perform combat duties. Spanish siege weapons are somewhat lacking, missing both the siege onager and heavy scorpion. In addition they are the only civilization to be missing the crossbowman upgrade.
