As shown above, the maximum population capacity in a player's empire is 200. This includes both Villagers and any Infantry.

To increase the population limit, player's will need to order their Villagers to build Houses. Each House will increase the population capacity by 10, until the maximum limit has been reached. The only civilisation that this doesn't apply to is the Mongols, who already start with the maximum population capacity available without the need to build houses.
