Who Am I

Although I eventually killed myself in 183 BC to avoid being captured by the Romans I will always be considered one of the greatest military leaders of all time.

At the age of 26 I became the Carthaginian commander in chief in Spain, where, during the second Punic War I set out to invadeItaly by crossing the Pyrenees with a small force of hand picked troops, and 38 fine war elephants!

At Cannae in 216 BC I won one of the most brilliant victories in history.

Who am I?
