Hello friends, I noticed a historical mistake that is important at the beginning of the description of the character of Vercingetorix. In the game we are told that his name means "winner of one hundred battles". This is absolutely not the case, Vercingetorix is not a name, it's a title. This title comes from the Celtic VER which means "big", CINN that can be translated by "cents", GEDO which means "head" and RIGH which means chief. This word means "Great Chief of One Hundred Heads" and not "Winner of One Hundred Battles".
It may seem ridiculous as a detail, but for a game that wants a minimum historical, or that in any case uses historical characters, I think it has its importance. We must return to Caesar what is Caesar! ;)
