Amilcar Barca, father of Hannibal, in Spain founded 227 a. C., the second capital of the empire: Cartagonova (Cartagena).
The incipient Roman empire already had colonies in the north of Spain; and they copied the Carthaginian ships nail by nail, and coveted total control; maritime trade was still dominated by Carthage.
With only 21 years of age, Hannibal had extensive diplomatic and military experience. Rome attacked Carthagonova, and Hannibal raised a gigantic army; surrounded the Pyrenees and in 218 a. C. crossed the Alps in an epic without parallel.
ulius Caesar, Richard the Lionheart of England, Napoleon and Páton used Hannibal's strategies, the same ones that are still studied in all the military academies of the world in the 21st century.
