"The beautiful princess Yodit has a promising future at the Aksumite court. But when her jealous nephew accuses her of theft, Yodit is forced to flee her home country. Witness how exile shaped this fallen princess into a mighty queen. For centuries the story of Yodit’s vengeance would invoke fear in the hearts of all Ethiopians."

Ethiopia up

Yodit is a campaign in Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms. It depicts the sacking of Aksum by Yodit (modern Ethiopian Gudit, Judith), a semi-legendary, non-Christian, Beta Israeli queen (flourished c.960) who laid waste to Aksum and its countryside, destroyed churches and monuments, and attempted to exterminate the members of the ruling Aksumite dynasty. Her deeds are recorded in the oral tradition and mentioned incidentally in various historical accounts.

Yodit is an infantry hero in Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms. She has the appearance of a Gbeto and is only available in the Scenario Editor. As a hero, she cannot be converted and can regenerate health.

It is not known why the in-game infobox indicates 20 attack when in reality, the attack is just 17.

Note that this unit does not actually appear in the campaign. There, Yodit is represented by the Princess Yodit, a Queen incapable of attacking.
