Hannibal Barca 247-183 B.C.

After a bitter loss to the Roman Empire in the First Punic War, Hamilcar Barca of Carthage realized he could not defeat the Roman army in his lifetime. And so he bequeathed this challenge to his eledest son, the miltiary genius, Hannibal of Carthage.

Raised on the battlefields of the First Punic War, Hannibal was a warrior from birth. Unlike his impetuous brother Hasdrubal, who guardes Spain, and his brother Mago the entertainer, Hannibal was cunning, extremely brave, and always patient. He molded his multi-national piecemeal army into a fierce, cohesive unit sworn to follow their commander's lead.

Although Hannibal is most known for his incredible journey across the Alps, his military achievements are equally impressive. Often out-numbered two to one, Hannibal's armies outwitted the Romans battle after battle, destroying eight consuls (160,000 troops) in just two years. As the wars raged on, Hannibal also became infamous for his ruthless and bloodthirsty methods of capturing towns and ransacking southern Italy.

In 207 B.C., while he had clearly won many battles, it soon became clear he had also failed to gain the allies needed to overcome Rome's vast supply of warriors. Without such support, Hannibal was forced back to Carthage. Long thereafter, when the Romans demanded his surrender, he escaped to Bithynia, where he died by poisoning.

Hannibal's legend lived on, however, in the hearts of Romans. It is a measure of fear his name inspired that long after he was dead, parents would tell their children to behave, or else Hannibal would come to get them in the night.
