|WARNING: This page contains spoilers to the plots of Age of Mythology and The Titans!|
It should be noted that there are two locations named Atlantis. The original one first appears in the Fall of the Trident campaign, whereas the second one (known as New Atlantis) appears in The New Atlantis campaign.
While it is not known, it is likely either the Olympian Gods or Pre-Historical Migrations allowed the Atlantean ancestors to arrive on Atlantis.
During its early history, Atlantis was covered in forests and plains, and because of this, was home to many horses, however over time, the forests and plains were slowly being replaced by farm land, and urban development. During this time, Atlantis was divided, but would eventually become a unified state ruled by religious leaders called Theocrats.
Over time, Atlantis would eventually settle and found many colonies, and territories in Greece, Egypt, Scandinavia and other places, and the Atlantean theocracy became an economic and military superpower. This would eventually wane however, most likely due to the slow collapse of support into the theocracy, and general ignorance towards religion.
Fall of the Trident Edit
During its later history however, the Atlanteans saw much opposition from other forces, being picked off by Pirates, Bandits, and other forces.
During this stage, Arkantos would rise from a lowly soldier with a spear and shield, to the Admiral of Atlantis, defeating her enemies, though eventually the Atlantean military would disband and be broken apart, apparently useless due to the lack of wars, and also ended up looking similar to its colonies than its own natural culture.
Before the end of Fall of the Trident campaign, Arkantos eventually returned to Atlantis, to find it assaulted by Gargarensis' forces, who try to reach the last gate to Tartarus, found beneath Atlantis itself. He manages, however, to stop Gargarensis from freeing the Titan Kronos, thanks to the Blessing of Zeus.
At the conclusion, the island of Atlantis is sunk by an enraged Poseidon, the former patron god of Atlantis, his schemes of freeing Kronos having failed. However, Kastor (son of Arkantos), Krios and many surviving Atlanteans are saved by Amanra's, Ajax's and Odysseus ships.
Scenarios of Appearance Edit
The New Atlantis Edit
Ten years after the events of Fall of the Trident, the surviving Atlanteans are facing a tough existance, as they have settled into an inhospitable tundra in Scandinavia. There, they have been abandonned by the Olympian Gods, and struggle against the elements and local Norse savages.
Kronos decides to utilise the Atlanteans' despair in order to free himself and the rest of the Titans; he sends one of his Servants to kill Krios and assume his appearance, so that he can manipulate the Atlanteans into escaping the tundra and eventually, make way for the Titans.
During the events of Atlantis Reborn, the Atlanteans, after escaping the tundra, reach an island that has being colonised by Greeks from the city-state of Sikyos. After driving them away this island is eventually settled and known as "New Atlantis".
Eventually, also featured is the original Atlantis itself, but reduced from a very large island to only an atoll, from where Kronos attemps to escape the Hades Gate featured in A Place in My Dreams. Thanks to the intervention of Gaia, who sends her son back to Tartarus, the atoll is turned lush and inhabited once more by the Atlanteans.

- Atlantis from The Titans expansion draws influence primarily from Mesoamerican civilizations (their architecture), whereas the presence of Llama Caravans hints towards Inca influence, and their military is based on historical types of soldiers and gladiators in the Roman Empire.
- On the other hand, the Atlanteans from Age of Mythology are represented by the Greeks, and similarly to the Trojans, they receive unique walls, with identical stats to the Trojan ones.
- In the in-game world map, Atlantis is based on Mindanao, the second largest island of the Philippines.
