    The following level specific achievements can also be unlocked during this campaign. See their achievements for more details.
     Some tips for the other missions:
    • 2nd Level - Henry The Lion will turn on you, build some trade carts to trade with your other allies then build some Mangonels and have them attack ground on Henry's buildings whilst he is an ally, thereby destroying them.
    • 4th Level - Henry the lion will once again turn on you so follow the same tactic as in mission 2
    • 5th Level - Keep your onagers on no attack otherwise they can kill half of your own men, Whilst it can be ignored, it is recommended you brake into Constantinople then take a couple of cavalry and station them near the wonder, this will give you a much bigger navy with which to cross the sea.
    • 6th Level - This mission can be completed in less than 10 minutes by following a method similar to the one below.
