In Crusader Kings, the player assumes the role of a medieval lord, with the goal to be the most powerful ruler throughout Europe. With conquest, intrigue and diplomacy you steer your realm, and like in medieval politics it is crucial to mix chivalry and treason, nepotism and loyalty. To achieve your goals you need to guide your family through a multitude of aspects including the intriguing politics of medieval times.

Crusader Kings is the ultimate experience for the true Diplomat as well as the deceitful backstabber and the fierce warrior.
