This chapter succinctly describes the site and earlier history of Carthage, supposedly founded by Phoenicians under princess Dido, her republican political system briefly commented on by Aristotle, and the development of Carthaginian civilization, notably her interest in Greek culture. It then briefly explains Hannibal's family background with special emphasis on the distinguished career of his father Hamilcar, nicknamed but not surnamed Barca, who was Carthage's general in Sicily for the final years of the First Punic War.

Keywords:   Carthage, Dido, Phoenicians, Aristotle, Carthaginian civilization, Hamilcar Barca, First Punic War
