Rise of Kingdoms: Sargon the Great – Skills, Talent Trees and Best Pairings

Sargon the Great

Emperor of Akkad


Civilization: Akkadian Empire


Sargon the Great was born a commoner, and spent his early life as a servant in the Kingdom of Kish. When the people of Umma invaded, Sargon took advantage of the king’s weakness to usurp power and founded the Akkadian Empire.

After taking power, Sargon fought many battles to expand his empire’s territory. He established the first reserve army force in history, and subsumed all of Sumer, Mari (a city-state on the Euphrates), and the ancient kingdom of Ebla into the Akkadian Empire. After this, he continued westward, expanding into southern and central Anatolia.

Sargon’s achievements were not limited to warfare. His empire saw great economic, agricultural, and cultural development, and he centralized the power of the state and appointed governors, allowing the Akkadian Empire to thrive.

Sargon the Great was not merely an accomplished warrior who founded the first great united power between the might rivers of the Tigris and the Euphrates. He also focused on economic development, making his empire one of the world’s most powerful economies at the time. The Akkadian Empire only stood for a hundred years, but its influence on future generations was undeniable, Sargon was indeed worthy of his title of “King of the Four Corners of the World”.
