Evony Epic Historic General Hannibal has good buffs mainly on mounted troops in the game. In history, he was a Punic Carthaginian military commander, generally considered one of the greatest military commanders. In this article, we introduce Hannibal’s story, special skills, and specialties in the first three parts. And then list as many ways as possible to obtain him. Finally, through experiments and calculations, we give some combinations of the Main General and Assistant General related to Hannibal and make corresponding explanations.

Hannibal’s General Story

In 218 BC, the Roman Republic and Carthage launched a war for the hegemony of the Mediterranean. The troops led by Hannibal, the chief commander of Carthage avoided the main force of Rome, set out from Spain, passed by Gaul, crossed the Alps, and finally arrived in Rome at the cost of nearly half of the troops lost!
Hannibal’s strategic talent gave his troops full confidence. Under the leadership of Hannibal, the troops repeatedly defeated the Roman troops and marched towards Cannae, the granary of Rome. On August 2,216 B.C., the Battle of Cannae broke out. Hannibal surrounded and annihilated the 80,000 Roman troops with 40,000 troops by using his strategic talent. This is one of the greatest battles in military history, in which a numerically inferior force defeated its stronger enemy.
Hannibal, known as the father of strategy, occupied Rome with his troops for 15 years, during which he almost conquered Rome and changed world history!

The Pairing of Hannibal’s Main and Assistant General

We have selected the following generals whose Special Skills do not conflict with Hannibal’s from the generals that are easier to obtain and develop.
Main General
Assistant General
Skill Book
(Lv4 Mounted Troop Attack)
The Best Aspect
Mounted Troop Attack
Maximilian I
Mounted Troop Attack
Ii Naomasa
Mounted Troop HP


When both special skills and specialties are at max level, the combination of Martinus and Hannibal has a stronger attack buff, although this combination cannot use the Skill Book of Lv4 Mounted Troop Attack. Don’t forget, Martinus has a Dragon God skin that provides additional buffs. The reason why we recommend Martinus as the Main General is that his skills require a dragon to be effective. However, if he is an Assistant General, the buff of the dragon itself will not take effect, which is a significant loss.
The attack bonus of Maximilian I and Hannibal’s combination is also good. Maximilian I is chosen as the Main General because it can increase March Size Capacity by 14%.
When Ii Naomasa serves as the Main General and Hannibal serves as the Assistant General, the Mounted Troop HP bonus is the highest among these combinations, and the March Size Capacity can also be increased by 14%.
