A new power emerges from the East and conquers the all that lay in its path. Meanwhile, on the frontier of this new empire, a collection of city-states in Greece begin to lay the foundations of European civilization along the Mediterranean.
The Greeks give birth to Western Civilization as their monumental impact upon history sets the stage for Western politics, philosophy, theatre, science, mathematics & much more. Also, a ambitious young general sets out to end the Persian threat in the East.
From a small town to a thriving city, Rome wasn't built in a day. Over time the world's first republic grew and prospered under the power of the Senate & a powerful military that expanded Roman culture by the sword on the road to dominate the Mediterranean.
The ambition of a few of the greatest men that Rome ever produced along with political strife and a series of civil wars help lead to the slow painful death of the Republic in Rome's epic game of "king of the mountain."
