Hamilcar Barca (c.270—228 BC) Carthaginian general
Hamilcar Barca was one of the leading field commanders on the Carthaginian side in the first Carthaginian War with the Romans (264-241). He developed an intense hatred for everything Roman, and in his later years, although technically the two powers were not at war, Hamilcar made his sons Hannibal, Has-drubal and Mago all swear eternal enmity against Rome. He was killed in Spain in 228.
