We hope youve enjoyed Hannibals story so far. See how it ended our final part.Hannibals Alpine invasion of Italy would shake the Mediterranean to its very foundations, and echo throughout the ages. He had wrong-footed Rome by such an order of magnitude that it would take many years and a military general of equal genius to truly challenge him. As Hannibal took his army south, the victories piled up. His first conflict was a minor one, at Ticinus near the Po Valley. He outmanoeuvred the hastily- assembled Roman force and won allies with the Gauls and Ligurians, enabling him to replace many of his losses. The Carthaginians battled their way south through Italy. At Trebia, Lake Trasimene and Cannae, Hannibal won three startling and tactically brilliant victories in quick succession. These b

Hannibals history continues with part 3 of our Hannibal feature.Before Hannibal assumed control of the Carthaginian forces in Iberia, his brother-in-law Hasdrubal had signed a treaty with Rome stating that neither side would extend their dominion beyond the Ebro river. By making the city of Saguntum a protectorate, Rome had essentially gained a foothold south of the Ebro and broken the pact. Hannibal saw the opportunity to legitimise his planned war with Rome. He took his forces south to Saguntum. The city fell after an eight-month siege, while Rome concerned itself with matters in Illyria. Rome was publicly affronted by the outrage and demanded satisfaction. Given Hannibals enormous popularity at home, the Carthaginian government backed his enterprise; in place of a formal apology, the Re

As promised, here is part 2 of Hannibals story.In 228 BC, after extending Carthaginian dominance into Iberia through a masterful blend of conquest and diplomacy, Hannibals father, Hamilcar, fell in battle. Command passed to his son-in-law, Hasdrubal the Fair. Of a political persuasion, Hasdrubal spent the next seven years consolidating his father-in-laws gains, even establishing a new Iberian capital, Nova Carthago, in 227 BC. Hasdrubals life was also cut short, in 221 BC, this time by a Celtiberian assassin. The power-vacuum didnt last for long, however, as the army swiftly elected Hannibal as their commander-in-chief. Carthage promptly approved the promotion; according to Livy, The old soldiers fancied they saw Hamilcar in his youth given back to them. Hannibal wasnt about to disappoint

With Hannibal at the Gates available now, we thought wed give the big man his due and tell the story of his life. This is part 1 of 4, so check back over the next few days as we illustrate the high points of Hannibals military careerBy the end of the First Punic War, Carthage was in poor shape. Her navies were battered, her coffers drained from the punishing post-war indemnities demanded by Rome. Left without sufficient funds to pay her mercenary armies, they were disbanded and promptly rebelled, attacking and taking Tunis. The Mercenary War was peppered with atrocities and lasted two years, during which Hamilcar Barca and other notable Carthaginian generals worked hard to bring the rebels to heel. Throughout the conflict, Rome acted honourably, even supportively towards Carthage. After al
