At the age of 26, he married an Iberian Princess named Imilce and after this either allied or conquered many Iberian tribes. He settled by making his own seaport called Quart Hadasht, meaning 'new city', which is nowadays called Carthagena
Though aside from his many achievements, he wasn't always successful. During the Second Punic War, he had quite some failures as he lost a lot of soldiers and failed to infiltrate Rome. Meanwhile, Carthaginian villages were being pillaged by the Romans and so the defeated Hannibal returned to defend his home
He had great successes as a leader, with the famous Battle of Cannae probably being one of the most well known, as he was able to defeat the Romans with half the of the soldiers they had. By having a grand vision and leading with example, he was able to get much closer to defeating the Romans than most during antiquity
I hope my father would be proud of me now.
Near the end of his life, a peace treaty was signed between Rome and the Carthaginians. Though he went into exile and the Romans tried to capture him. To avoid getting captured by his blood-sworn enemy at the age of 65 years old he drank poison which ended his life.
Even though the Romans repeatedly attempted to get rid of all the legends and stories about Hannibal, with each attempt, he only became more well known. So many historians had written about his countless victories and struggles, and thanks to that we still know quite a lot of stories about him nowadays
Requiescat in pace
That was the story for today, now its time to go to bed. And don't stay up playing videogames, as this story above all should have taught you to respect your father's, and in this case grandfather's wishes
Or otherwise, I will just like Hannibal "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam!" (Find a way or make one) to get you to sleep.
