Hannibal’s Legendary Campaigns

In 218 BC, a monumental war erupted between the Roman Republic and Carthage for Mediterranean supremacy. Hannibal, the chief commander of Carthage, embarked on a daring journey from Spain, through Gaul, over the Alps, and reached Rome, despite losing nearly half his troops. His strategic brilliance inspired unwavering confidence among his soldiers.

Under Hannibal’s command, the Carthaginian troops consistently outmaneuvered the Romans. Their most notable victory was the Battle of Cannae in 216 B.C., where Hannibal’s 40,000 troops encircled and decimated a Roman army of 80,000, demonstrating a remarkable triumph of strategy over numbers.

For 15 years, Hannibal maintained his presence in Rome, nearly bringing the city under his control and significantly altering the course of world history. His tactical genius earned him the title, “father of strategy,” marking him as one of history’s most formidable military leaders.

The Pairing of Hannibal’s Main and Assistant General

We have selected the following generals whose Special Skills do not conflict with Hannibal’s from the generals that are easier to obtain and develop.
Main General
Assistant General
Skill Book
(Lv4 Mounted Troop Attack)
The Best Aspect
Mounted Troop Attack
Maximilian I
Mounted Troop Attack
Ii Naomasa
Mounted Troop HP
When both special skills and specialties are at max level, the combination of Martinus and Hannibal has a stronger attack buff, although this combination cannot use the Skill Book of Lv4 Mounted Troop Attack. Don’t forget, Martinus has a Dragon God skin that provides additional buffs. The reason why we recommend Martinus as the Main General is that his skills require a dragon to be effective. However, if he is an Assistant General, the buff of the dragon itself will not take effect, which is a significant loss.
The attack bonus of Maximilian I and Hannibal’s combination is also good. Maximilian I is chosen as the Main General because it can increase March Size Capacity by 14%.
When Ii Naomasa serves as the Main General and Hannibal serves as the Assistant General, the Mounted Troop HP bonus is the highest among these combinations, and the March Size Capacity can also be increased by 14%.
