Hannibal Barca is without a doubt the most famous general from ancient Carthage in northwestern Africa. To reiterate, he was the dude who led an army of African elephants across the Alps to attack the Romans. He would have almost wiped them off the map too, except the ruling oligarchy back in Carthage denied his request for reinforcements after his big battle at Cannae. Had his own government shown him much more support, we'd probably be naming dinosaurs with Carthaginian rather than Latin vocabulary. As it happened, he lost the Second Punic War, and after the Third War Carthage itself would be destroyed.
