The patches are numbered for convinence by Firaxis so that 1.XX is for Civilization, 2.XX is Warlords, and 3.XX is Beyond the Sword. This also applies to the Mac version, although there are a sizable difference in the amount of patches for the Mac version due to it being released after the PC version (thus the released version usually is already patched with much of the previous patches).
For convenience, and because the patches are automated in telling if they are required or not and should install over any previous patch, the last patch for each expansion is:
Civilization 4 1.74
Beyond the Sword 3.19
Some versions of the game released (such as Civilization IV Complete) have the patches included in them. To check the patch number you have go to the main menu and select "About".
The low resolution movies files are also included, which can help performance when playing movies on older hardware.
In addition to official and beta patches, a file is required from the Beyond the Sword version of the game for vanilla (ie: those with only Civilization 4 installed) or Warlords to play with those using Beyond the Sword, due to a patching error by Firaxis. Information on this fix was sourced from here: http://www.apolyton.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=171033
The files have been renamed from some of the original download names, to better note what version they patch. All patch notes that were found around the web (although incomplete, please contact us if you can provide further in depth information).
See the patch note text files for patch notes.
