The Akkadian Empire is lead by Sargon the Great. Their unique unit is the Laputtu and their unique building is the Sapitu.
The Akkadian people were a Semitic people that lived North of the Legendary Sumerians. They were the Junior partner of Mesopotamia for a long time, that is until Sargon usurped the throne. Sargon was a tactical genius and conquered all of Sumer and beyond. He is often considers the first emperor ever, making his Empire the first Empire.
After Sargon‘s death the Empire survived and went through some leaders before Akkadia was ruled by Naram-Sin, the second greatest king of Akkad. However after Naram-Sin the empire steadily declined before being conquered by the savage Gutians.
