Demanding tribute is one of several ways to end a war. This option allows the player to demand the opponent's surrender, and opens the menu in which the player chooses what his opponent is to give in order to end the war. It should only be taken when the player is winning a war, as the enemy will rarely surrender when winning.

There are a number of options when demanding tribute in a peace negotiation.
