Trivia

This age roughly began with the disintegration of the mongol empire into four different hordes by the 14th century and the initiation of the hundred years war fought from 1337 to 1453 between the French and the English as the later stages of the crusades began to conclude. The subsequent decline and conquest of the remaining khanates over the next two centuries first by Ming China to the east in 1368 and the Grand Duchy of Moscow in the west by 1480 would later result in the emergence of gunpowder empires in the Middle East by the 1500s. They consist of the Ottoman, Safavid and Mughal empires which would proliferate over the next several centuries extending into the Colonial Age. Following the fall of Constantinople to Ottoman Turks by 1453, these gunpowder kingdoms would later monopolized overland trade along the silk road. The onset and widespread of gunpowder used towards the end of the age is shown in the game featuring the Cannon as an artillery unit and the Gunpowder Manufactory as a goods building.

This trade monopoly imposed on western kingdoms would eventually pave the way for the discovery of the New World and its immediate colonization by western European powers through explorers such as Amerigo Vespucci and Christopher Columbus during the late 15th century, starting with Spain and Portugal with their Reconquista of the Iberian peninsula over the Moors in 1492. Buildings such as the Spice Trader as a premium production building and Silk Manufactory as a goods building reflect the beginning of this trade monopoly.

This age also coincides with the height of Italian Renaissance and finally concludes with the Battle of Lepanto by 1571 which ushered a new age of sailing ships and the peak of the Protestant Reformation during the late 16th century, resulting in another European schism between Catholicism and Protestantism as well as accelerating colonization and pilgrimage to the Americas. This is evident through cultural buildings such as the Cartographer, the Library and the Academy.
