Carthage, Zeugitana, North Africa, 230 - 220 B.C.
The Second Punic War, 218 - 202 B.C., is marked by Hannibal's surprising crossing of the Alps and crushing victories over Roman armies in the battles of the Trebia, Trasimene, and Cannae. Despite these and other setbacks, Roman forces recaptured the major cities that had joined the enemy, defeated attempts to reinforce Hannibal, and ended Carthaginian rule over Iberia. At the final showdown, the battle of Zama in Africa, Scipio Africanus defeated Hannibal, resulting in harsh peace terms. Carthage ceased to be a major power and became a Roman client-state.
