Flag of Rhodes Rhodes is a local power located in the Asia Region, directly controlling 4 territories with a total population of 57. Led by Archon (ruler) Demaratus Demaratid (Martial 7 Civic power.png 4 Oratory power.png 4 Religious power.png 5), Rhodes starts off bordering 3 different nations. Flag of Phrygia Phrygia to the north and east, Flag of Halikarnassos Halikarnassos to the west, and Flag of Knidos Knidos to the southwest, who is a feudatory of Phrygia. Rhodes does not start off with any diplomatic partners, however such nations as Flag of Macedon Macedon, Flag of Egypt Egypt, Flag of Thrace Thrace, and possibly Phrygia would be open to alliances.

Historically, Rhodes came under the control of Alexander the Great in 332 BCE after he defeated the Persians. Following the death of Alexander, Antigonous directed his son, Demetrius to besiege Rhodes in 305 BCE, one year before the start date of Imperator. The unsuccessful siege only lasted a year before Demetrius signed a peace treaty with Rhodes. Following this, Rhodes created a statue of the sun god Helios, which was since called the Colossus of Rhodes and became a wonder of the ancient world.
