Civilization V Customisation Wiki

Egypt led by Narmer is a custom civilization by More Civilizations, with contributions from Janboruta and Andrew Holt.

This mod requires Brave New World.



Few civilizations have left such an indelible mark on history as that of Egypt. Living astride the mighty Nile River for some 5,000 years, Egypt is one of the oldest surviving civilizations on the planet. Among many other firsts, Egypt is credited with the invention of writing around 3000 BC. Using sophisticated mathematics, Egyptian scholars plotted the movement of the planets with great precision. And of course, the Egyptians were the ancient world's greatest architects, creating monuments and temples that still awe and inspire us today.


Narmer was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the Early Dynastic Period. Probably the successor to the Protodynastic pharaohs Scorpion and/or Ka, many consider him the unifier of Egypt and founder of the First Dynasty, and therefore the first pharaoh of a unified Egypt.

Dawn of Man[]

The Two Lands bow before you, O Great Narmer, Unifier of Upper and Lower Egypt, and first Pharaoh of the First Dynasty! Your enemies tremble at your name and your people bless you for your wisdom. Like the potter shapes the clay, so too did you shape the discordant kingdoms of the Nile Valley into the greatest civilization humanity has ever seen. This nation you built would come to awe the world unlike any other and for millennia it would endure. Her monuments will forever serve as your everlasting legacy.

Art by Janboruta

Fierce catfish of Horus! Egypt requires your will once more. She needs a firm hand to guide her that she might flourish once again. Will you rise to the challenge and once again forge a nation from the desert sands? Will you raise temples to the Gods and tombs for your people? Will you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?'

Introduction: Approach stranger, and know you stand before Narmer. Unifier of Upper and Lower Egypt.

Introduction: Ra's blessings upon you. I am Narmer. Pharaoh of these lands.

Defeat: Egypt has fallen. And all that will remain are the tombs of our people.
