Zenobia's Tower
Trained atGranary (Age of Empires)
Cost ≈75 [1] Stone

In Age of Empires, Zenobia's Tower is an ultimate Tower found only in the Scenario Editor and Campaign modes of the game. The tower is considered a Hero by some. The tower looks similar to the Ballista Tower and fires the same projectile but has doubled attack and fire rate. This defensive structure starts out with 1000 hit points (the most in the game), 40 attack and 10 range. Only the hit points of this structure can be improved. If architecture is researched, the hit points would increase from 1000 to 1200, making it virtually the most indestructable Unit in the game.


  • If placed on top of a cliff or elevation, the attack increases from 40 to 60.
  • Hit points do not double if played as the Babylonians.
  • Tower range does not increase by 2 points if played as the Choson.
  • Range cannot be upgraded by Woodworking technologies in the Market.


This tower is based on Queen Zenobia who once controlled the powerful Palmyran Empire during the 3rd century AD. She is known for her revolt against the Roman Empire and is claimed to be the descendant of Dido, Queen of Carthage and Cleopatra, the famous Egyptian Pharaoh.

  1. This is the repair cost, not build cost. The repair cost of a building is usually half of the build cost. That is, it would cost 150 Stone if one would be able to build a Zenobia's Tower.
