General Information[]

The Might of Carthage

Historical Description[]

Hannibal was born in 247 BCE in Carthage, located in present day North Africa. His father, Hamilcar Barca, was an honored Carthaginian General who was given command of Carthage’s forces during the final years of the First Punic War. Hannibal’s father drowned in battle during the Carthaginian conquest of Hispania and his command was succeeded by Hannibal’s brother-in-law, Hasdrubal. Hannibal served as an officer until his brother-in-law was assassinated, and thus, the 26 year old Hannibal was appointed Commander-In-Chief of the Carthaginian army.

Soon after receiving this role, Hannibal attacked an Iberian city named Saguntum, a city friendly to Rome, which was received as an act of war to the Romans. After a long siege Saguntum fell, and Rome declared War on Carthage, thus beginning the Second Punic War.

The War would continue for almost 14 years, and Hannibal’s prowess as a Commander would lead Carthaginian forces to victory in many battles that would likely have been lost to lesser Commanders. One of Hannibal’s famous victories was during the Battle of Cannae, where Roman forces greatly outnumbered the Carthaginian military. Hannibal ordered his flanks of cavalry and infantry to employ a pincer movement after defeating their opposition, resulting in the Roman forces becoming surrounded and decisively defeated. Strategies similar to the one employed at the Battle of Cannae would become popular warfare tactics, even in modern times.

Years after the conclusion of the Second Punic War, Hannibal fled into exile to avoid allegations that he was attempting to influence Antiochus III to declare war on Rome. Though the time of his death has not been confirmed, Hannibal poisoned himself between 183 and 181.
