  • The First Punic War ended with Rome being victorious.
  • The second Punic was lasted from 318-201 BC, the reason was over the boundaries for the Ebro River. They both wanted more and more so they ended up fighting over it.
  • Hannibal remembered his oath to his father to hate the Romans and attacks Rome, his army wins and Carthage pillages Saguntum.
  • The third Punic War lasted from 149-169 BC, and was fought because Carthage was put under siege because Numidia, a client state of Rome, was told to siege them.
  • This siege ended up being the ultimate destruction or Carthage, for at the fifty year mark, Carthage rebelled against Numidia and lost, making Rome the ultimate winners of the war.
