Starting as an ally of Rome, Carthage sits poised to threaten Rome’s plans of Mediterranean Hegemony. Carthage has its own culture, one of the larger empires at the start of the campaign and a special Mercenary Barracks system representing their heavy use of mercenaries at the time. Its political tradition is Republic and there are three choices for starting political parties.
This faction relies on Greek Global Reforms. These include Thureos at turn 60 and Thorax at turn 140.
This faction is playable in the Grand Campaign and Hannibal at the Gates Campaign.
