Queen Seondeok Leads Korea in Civilization VI: Rise and Fall

p>2K and Firaxis Games today revealed that Queen Seondeok will lead Korea in Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Rise and Fall.

Long before Seondeok was crowned Queen of Silla (now Korea), legends tell of her being incredibly clever. That insightfulness made her a diplomat to be respected and a strategist to be feared.

With no male successors, Seondeok became the rightful heir after King Jinpyeong’s death in 632. This lead to infighting and some outright rebellions.  All the while, she still set about major projects to improve the lives of the Sillan people. Welfare policies were put in place to help the most impoverished citizens. She invested heavily in education, allowing knowledge in the arts and sciences to flourish during her rule.
