My plans worked perfectly. You are no match for me!
— The Rat, destroying enemy buildings

Duc De Puce (more commonly known as "The Rat") is an antagonist of Stronghold and an AI character in Stronghold Crusader, Extreme and Stronghold Crusader 2.


Castles and StrategiesEdit

The Rat is a militarily and economically inept leader, who recruits the cheapest troops and constructs castles in most obscure patterns. As he does not make use of advanced tactics or defenses, his strength lies in the earlier periods of the game, but suffers later on.
