Charismatic is one of the leader traits, introduced in the Warlords and Beyond the Sword expansion packs. Charismatic leaders get +1 happiness per city, +1 happiness from Monument and Broadcast Tower and -25% experience points needed for unit promotions.
The following leaders are Charismatic:
- Boudica (Celts)
- George Washington (America)
- Hannibal (Carthage)
- De Gaulle (France)
- Napoleon (France)
- Abraham Lincoln (America)
- Brennus (Celts)
- Cyrus (Persia)
- Churchill (England)
Charismatic is a trait of many uses, and has synergy with most other traits. While by face value it's a war trait (cheap experience means units get stronger faster, and more happiness deals with war weariness), the happiness in peace-time helps your cities grow bigger - potentially 2 more population in many cities. A builder could use the trait to build large cities, switch to war traits, produce heavily-promoted defending units and switch back to peaceful traits to ensure a good defense.
