- Special traits:
- Each Pasture worked by this City produces +1 Production and +1 Gold.
- +15 XP for Mounted Units produced in this City.
- No maintenance cost
The Ducal Stable is a great replacement for the Stable. It has no maintenance cost and, in addition to the regular abilities of the Stable, it adds Gold potential on Pasture improvements and gives +15 XP for mounted units trained in this city. To make the best use of these bonuses, you must make sure you settle your cities near as many resources that can be upgraded with Pastures as you can (similar to the Huns).
Casimir III, upon his ascension to the throne in 1333 AD, was forced to placate the restless Polish nobility by granting them extensive concessions, including the right to maintain stables the equivalent of those of the crown. Until the end of the Napoleonic Wars, these ducal stables were a source of both prestige and power, housing from fifty to several hundred horses in addition to the grooms, with rooms for tack, saddles and trappings. Some, like the ducal stable at Szczecin, were practical and functional; others were ostentatious, with pillars and statuary, as exemplified by the stable at Kraków. Regardless of size and ornamentation, the ducal stables supplied the mounts for Poland's famed cavalry formations.
