The war started when Rome invaded Carthage because it was wealthy. Once Rome invaded Carthage it interfere there trade so Carthage wasn't going to let that slide.
Where are u going?
Plus they have 3 citites they overtook and there trades are good.
To Carthage heard theirs a lot of land there
Rome decided to interven at the Western Coast of the island Sicily with soldiers from the city of Syracuse against the city of Messina. Both cities were supported by each other so it grew into a bigger conflict.
Why are u going to fight if u support Messina?
But that will make it turn into a much bigger issue.
Because Carthage has the wealthiest land in town.
The first war won by the Romans becuase of the Roman fleet. In the end of the first Punic War Sicily became Rome's first overseas province.
When will u give up and rest?
This land is to worthy to stop right here.
We will not give up this land so easily.
Rome has conquered many cities and some people were jealous Hannibal went with his troops to fight Rome and they surrounded it to twice as much army that Rome had.
Someone will come for you because of how much you have taken;
I have a much bigger army than any other person.
Why we have lost a fight I will have to regain myself.
Cartheriages wanted war again and they got it. They have finallly surrendered
