The two new civilizations are Gaul and Byzantine, both located in Europe and included in the Roman Empire in ancient times. One of the mysteries of the new DLC pack is the leaders of the new civilizations. Because these European regions were so involved in historical conquests, it will be interesting to see who the leaders are. Gaul was a region with many leaders and cultures, and was occupied by different empires throughout history. Gaul started as a region inhabited by Celtic tribes, then was invaded by Rome, and nearly 500 years later Gaul was again conquered by the Franks.
