Belisarius is a cavalry hero available in the Scenario Editor in Age of Empires II. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health (since The Conquerors).

Belisarius does not feature in any of the original campaigns, but does feature in several The Forgotten campaigns, some of which he is playable. Belisarius has the appearance of a Cataphract, but has different combat stats. He has higher HP, but a weaker armor and attack.

Like other cavalry, he is affected by all upgrades that affect cavalry as well as any other bonuses that affect them.

History Edit

Belisarius (Greek: Βελισάριος, c. 500 – 565 AD) was a Byzantine general under Emperor Justinian the Great. Regarded as one of the best generals of his time, he reconquered much of the former Western Roman Empire.
