Chapter 11: The Wicked. 160 - 156 BCE



Baalhaan Yujnegi “The wicked”, 2° Great Jawoh of the Odiq’e, 5° Exiled King of Ishfania.

Son of Zinnridi, son of Hanno, son of Hannibal, son of Dido, daughter of Ayzebel, daughter of Yzebel, daughter of Similce, daughter of Sophonisba, daughter of Sophonisiba, daughter of Mago, founder of the Kingdom of Ishfania.

Before ascending the throne, Baalhaan Yujnegi was the leader of the merchants under the command of his father, the Great Jawoh, and now, as he replaced his father on the throne, he started to strengthen the commercial dominance of the Odiq’e in the region even further with the knowledge gained during his years of training, he was successful at doing this, and the people enjoyed some degree of prosperity under his rule.

But as the prosperity of his people increased, so did the problems, as he, even as the Great Jawoh of the Odiq’e faced great opposition from his oldest sister, Dido Yujnegi, the Great Priestess of the Triple Goddess, a woman with great political and spiritual power over his people.


In the past, Baalhaan ordered the murder of his own brother, Zaracas Yujnegi, because he threatened his position as the probable winner of the election of the successor of his father, he was proved innocent at the time according to the laws of the realm, but his sister would never forgive him for his sins.


The relation between the brothers worsened shortly after Baalhaan ascended to Great Jawoh because he ordered the release of a heretic who was imprisoned by the priests of Dido and after that, he appointed him as his court physician.


Baalhaan tried to counter the power of his sister in every opportunity, and he tried to convince the nobles to depose her as the Great Priestess, but his father, Zinnridi, had stipulated that the Great Jawoh’s powers were of earthly nature and could not interfere with the clergy, and that, in the eyes of the nobles, rendered Dido immune from any attempt by the Great Jawoh to depose her. However, Baalhaan managed to get her not to be named his successor, because if the earthly power could not interfere with the spiritual one, it could not be the other way around, his argument was also based on the fact that in Ishfania they had mostly female rulers and it was the time for men to rule, the Odiq'e could not afford to fall as their ancestors did. Many of the nobles agreed with this statement, mostly the natives. But all the clergy stood their ground with Dido, and because of that, the common people, who interacted more with the priesthood than with the nobles, did that as well.

The crisis inside the Yujnegi family was reaching its peak, confronting the great religious apparatus created by Zinnridi with the government headed by the Great Jawoh, and that would have provoked a violent response on both sides if a great plague of smallpox had not been unleashed in the territories of the Odiq'e in 156 BCE.

The plague struck first in the rural villages of the natives, and after a few months, hundreds of peasants were dying because of it and the food supply to Oq Ykayo was interrupted. This caused the nobles supporting Baalhaan to ask him to stop the conflict with the clergy, as they feared the peasants would revolt in short time if this situation continued. He agreed, mainly because he feared the consequences of not doing it.


Even if the conflict between the two power softened for a time, the plague continued in the villages of the interior, and the rift between the priesthood and the government continued as the plague itself was viewed as a punishment to the realm because of the wickedness of the Great Jawoh who earned the sobriquet of “the wicked” as he would be remembered centuries after his death.


If the Great Jawoh was incapable of saving the life of his wife, he was considered to be incapable to help his people.
The nobles started to give more support to the priesthood, as they didn’t wanted revolts in their lands instigated by the holy men, this made Baalhaan fear for his life, and he began to search for an alternative to remain in power regardless of the loyalties of the nobles and the enmity with his sister.

Chapter 12: The Cursed Leader. 156-151 BCE

After a year, more and more people viewed the Great Jawoh as the source of the Great Plague that asolated the realm, and as more and more nobles flocked to the cause of Dido, Baalhaan looked for an alliance with a mayan city-state to remain in power, so in 156 BCE he married Jekankil Bahlamid, daughter of the Halach winik Jan Bahlamid of Dzibilchaltun, the leader of his most powerful neighbors in the region.


The alliance with Dzibilchaltun guaranteed the internal peace that Baalhaan needed to rule over a realm in turmoil because of the Plague, and also because of the problems between the powers of the Great Republic.
But as the gods were against Baalhaan because of his past, everyone around the Great Jawoh started to die because of the plague, his wife died weeks after his marriage with him, and with Jekankil, Princess of Dzibilchaltun, died the alliance he made with that mayan Kingdom, then, his own mother and daughter died in the same day because of the illness that had already killed his two wives.


This only increased the rumors about the curse of Baalhaan, and made Dido even more powerful in the court, were she began to plot to replace the disgraced Great Jawoh with Admago, their more popular brother.

Of all the siblings of Dido, only Admago survived well into adulthood, as Bomilcar and Hanno Yujnegi, the oldest brothers, were sacrificed by the mayans in the war against Ajaw, Zaracas was “murdered” in a hunting accident by Baalhaan some years ago and Hannibal, the youngest brother, had died some months ago because of the plague, as so many did in these dark times.


The faction headed by Dido wanted Baalhaan to abdicate. But then, a more lethal outbreak of the plague struck Oq Ykayo, and killed most of the nobles who opposed his rule, and Dido didn’t had all the votes needed to depose his brother, she retreated into her temple in the capital. Seeing the change of the situation, Baalhaan exiled his sister to New Gadir, the most faraway island in the domains of the Great Republic and started to plan his next move. Everything would be easier now, he believed.

Few years later, in 151 BCE, Baalhaan went with some merchants to Takalik Abaj, another of the mayan city-states of the west, there, and after two days of negotiations, he tried to intervene in a heated debate between one of the priests of Dido who accompanied the Odiq’e merchants and the locals, when they were dining with Léembal, the Halach winik of the city.


That proved to be a great mistake, as Léembal was interested in the theological debate. The merchants and Baalhaan were expelled from the city and that ruined any chance to open a route from Oq Yqayo to Takalik Abaj. Something vital for the future Odiq’e plans of expansion.



Feeling betrayed by his own people, he ordered the troublemaker priest to be executed, and while he was returning to the capital, he stopped a plan to kill him that involved manure stockpiled in an inn.


After executing the innkeeper and anyone that he believed involved in this conspiracy and marched to Oq Ykayo, where he intended to personally imprison Dido, his old enemy, as he believed that she was involved in his failure in Takalik Abaj and in this failed attempt to assassinate him.


His biggest enemy, his sister.
But when he and his caravan were close to the border of Dzibilchaltun he was victim of another assassination attempt, this time successful.


The news of the death of Baalhaan quickly reached the capital, and after blaming the foreigners from Takalik Abaj for the assassination and sending a note of protest for this cruel act, Dido Yujnegi called for the election of the next Great Jawoh, and this time, Admago, her younger brother, was elected.

Everything went wrong for Baalhaan, the second Great Jawoh, maybe the goddess will be nicer to his successor. Meanwhile the plague are killing peasants and nobles alike, these cursed lands maybe will wipe out the Odiq'e from history...

After a long hiatus because of my vacations, i return with this:
__________________________________________________
Chapter 13: The Wise 151-128 BCE

Admago Yujnegi, 3° Great Jawoh of the Odiq’e, 6° King of Ishfania in exile.

Son of Zinnridi, son of Hanno, son of Hannibal, son of Dido, daughter of Ayzebel, daughter of Yzebel, daughter of Similce, daughter of Sophonisba, daughter of Sophonisiba, daughter of Mago, founder of the Kingdom of Ishfania.

Admago was elected as the new Great Jawoh, his reign was promising as he was well respected by the nobility and backed by the priesthood, but the plague was killing natives and foreigners alike in Yucatan, and most local Kingdoms were weakened by the constant deaths of peasants, in some parts of the mayan world, entire villages were wiped out, so the plague was shortly followed by starvation, and the Odiq’e feared the worst, total extinction.

The new leader had great plans for his people, but the plague killed him too early. In these dark times, the nobles elected Mattos Yujnegi as the new Great Jawoh, the son of Dido Yujnegi.


__________________________________________________________________________


Mathos Yujnegi “The Wise”, 4° Great Jawoh of the Odiq’e, 7° King of Ishfania in exile.​

Son of Dido, daughter of Zinnridi, son of Hanno, son of Hannibal, son of Dido, daughter of Ayzebel, daughter of Yzebel, daughter of Similce, daughter of Sophonisba, daughter of Sophonisiba, daughter of Mago, founder of the Kingdom of Ishfania.

He was the son of Kuiy u’id, the last Olmec King and Dido Yujnegi, the daughter of Zinnridi Yujnegi, the last leader of the Phoenician exiles from Ishfania, because of this he was known as the first Odiq’e, as he was the child of two worlds that were united as one on himself.

Mathos passed great part of his childhood reading the old scrolls in the temples ran by his mother, the Great Priestess, and he never wanted to be the Great Jawoh, but his mother pressed him into accepting the charge. He was wildly popular with the peasants, as he was seen as the true heir of Zinnridi legacy.

As an Odiq’e he knew that the success of his people relied heavily on the success of trade, as that was the only way to expand the influence of his people in the region, currently dominated by mayan culture. So in 140 BCE he sent merchants to Kaminaljuyu, the most important Mayan Kingdom in the west, there he started good relations with the Ahau K’aak “The Dragon” of Kaminaljuyu and a great trade deal was made with the mayans.


This success was interrupted by the Great Plague of 137 BCE that claimed the life of his wife, Yahima, and the lives of hundreds of peasants.

After the death of his wife, his spymaster uncovered a complot to kill his son Malchus, so he sent him to New Gadir, far from the court, to the great temple that was being built there to host the great project of his mother, the Great Library of New Gadir.


He had a great reputation as a good ruler, so he earned the sobriquet “The Wise” and even with the plague claiming more and more lives with each passing year, he was loved by his people.

In 130 BCE another Great Plague started, and maybe following the trade to the west, reached Kaminaljuyu and every mayan city-state between Oq Ykayo and said Kingdom, killing thousands of natives.


In 128 BCE, Mathos Yujnegi died from Camp Fever in another plague, this time his mother, Dido Yujnegi, was elected as the new Great Jawoh.

Chapter 15: The Prophecies 128-125 BCE


Dido Yujnegi , 5° Great Jawoh of the Odiq’e, 8° Queen of Ishfania in exile.​

Daughter of Zinnridi, son of Hanno, son of Hannibal, son of Dido, daughter of Ayzebel, daughter of Yzebel, daughter of Similce, daughter of Sophonisba, daughter of Sophonisiba, daughter of Mago, founder of the Kingdom of Ishfania.

Named after the last Queen of Ishfania from the Yujnegi family, Dido was the High Priestess most of her life, and after she dedicated her entire live to the realm, she was elected as the next Great Jawoh when her son, Mattos the Wise, died. She was 67 years old when she ascended to the throne, having served under Zinnridi, Baalhaan, Admago and Mattos, she was born in this new world.

In the years of the rule of his son with Kuiy u’id, Mattos, her antecessor as Great Jawoh, she started to build a Library in New Gadir, the first settlement from were her father started his project to create the Great Republic that she helped to build. The most important texts stored in New Gadir were the Prophecies, a collection of scrolls detailing the visions of all the diviners of the realm and the ones from herself about the future of her people. There, she also helped to raise Malchus, her grandson.

Zinnridi, her father, had a vision that in the future, after conquering the Mayans...the Odiq’e would return to the Old World to reconquer the old lands of Ishfania taken by the Turdetani, and that even the powerful leaders of Cartage would kneel before the might his descendants. The scrolls not only were a collection of prophesies, but also were the guidelines to her successors, so the dream of her father would be never be lost to time. And even if their descendants were fully assimilated into the mayan culture, their will not forget their origins, as she ordered the scrolls to be treated as sacred texts, her reputation as the First Great Priestess would ensure the survival of her work.

Her rule was short because of her old age, and after she died of Cancer, his grandchild Malchus, the son of Mattos, was elected as the next Great Jawoh.

And suddenly, as if a curse was lifted from the Odiq’e, the plague ceased.

PS: I created a new mod that do not crashes (at all) as this old one, so i would continue with this ARR more often.

Chapter 16: The Conquest of Cubanacan , 125- 121 BCE.


Malchus Yujnegi , 6° Great Jawoh of the Odiq’e, 9° King of Ishfania in exile.

Son of Mattos, son of Dido, daughter of Zinnridi, son of Hanno, son of Hannibal, son of Dido, daughter of Ayzebel, daughter of Yzebel, daughter of Similce, daughter of Sophonisba, daughter of Sophonisiba, daughter of Mago, founder of the Kingdom of Ishfania.


Our cultural influence in the the region can become our demise, as it did when Zinnridi did his war against the mayans of Ajaw, thank to our careless commerce with them, the mayans had access to horses and that cost us an entire Kingdom…we cannot afford that happening to us again…because next time that will cost us our very existence” (The Prophecies, scroll 2)

Oq Yqayo, 125 BCE

Malchus was raised in New Gadir under the direct tutelage of the Abdalon family, one of the remaining old ones from Phoenician origin, there, he was well protected from the plague and from the enemies of his family, when he was elected as the next Great Jawoh, the first thing he did was marrying with Sophoniba, the daughter of his mentor, Hampsicora Abdalon.


He summoned all members of his council to Oq Yqayo, not only because he needed them, but because he wanted to expand the influence of his Phoenician mentor in the Great Republic, and didn’t wanted that the Odiq’e were to be the only ones having political power during his reign…he planned to have two factions fighting between each other so he could rule in peace.

The first to speak was, of course, his beloved mentor and father in law, Hampsicora.

- My Great Jawoh, as your grandmother Dido wisely wrote in the Prophesies, we cannot tolerate the advancement of the Taino, as past generations needed their help to build our cities, they then proceeded to give that knowledge to their own kind, and now, while we are recovering from decades of plague, they are building a fleet that can rival ours, and can easily overpower our armies if we give them enough time to do so.- Hampsicora looked angry, but as he stopped talking, he looked into the eyes of the other members of the council, looking for support.

- We all know that the Taino can become a menace in the future, but our holy duty is to conquer the Mayans, not the islanders, who have been our allies since the times of Zinnridi, it is written in the Prophesies, my trusted Hampsicora. We must follow the wisdom of the Great Dido at all times, we cannot deviate from the path she saw for our people -At’nibl, the Great Priest of the Faith, talked using a calm, but convincing voice- We all know what happened to the Great Jawoh Baalhaan for ignoring the wisdom of Dido, my lords.
All the members of the councils remembered what happened to Baalhaan Yujnegi, presumably murdered by the priests for being a heretical tyrant. That was a direct threat to everyone at the table, as all knew the power that the Great Priest of the Faith had over the general populace, power that had increased after the end of the plague when Dido died –or ascended to the heavens, according to the priesthood-.

- Calm down, At’nibl – said Malchus- we will never forget the wisdom of my Grandmother, but, as Hampsicora said, the biggest threat to our existence, right now, are the Taino. I have received reports that under the leadership of Guarionex of Cubanacan they are preparing for war… and if they expand into the other islands they will overpower us with ease, weakened like we are after decades of plague. I can promise you, and to everyone present, that after dealing with the islanders, we will declare war against the Mayans.


The worst enemy will be always a competent ruler.

- But my lord, the Taino are our historical allies, even myself have some of their blood running through my veins, and so do many of your subjects, this can be seen as treason against those who helped us settle in these lands! – said with concern, Mago, governor of Cancun.

- Do not worry Mago, I have a plan: we will send an expeditionary force to Cubanacan, then we will see if they are building a fleet, if that its true, and they are using our ships designs, they have stolen from us, and that will be our casus belli. If that is not true, we will just send our troops to New Gadir and claim that our soldiers…are just overly dressed pilgrims. – explained the Great Jawoh.

At’nibl, the Great Priest of the Odiq’e, was satisfied, not only he asserted his influence over the young Malchus, he secured that every member of the council recognized that, and even better, he had the promise of a war against the Mayans. Meanwhile, the Phoenicians of New Gadir were happy with their Great Jawoh, a preventive war against the Taino would secure their influence for the years to come.

Malchus ordered the council to prepare the Great Republic’s forces for war, then retired to his chambers, were his beloved wife awaited for him.


The council in 125 BCE
__________________​

Cubanacan, March, 123 BCE

The Odiq’e fleet had recently passed the Zinnridi Pass, the space of water that separated Oq Yqayo from Cubanacan, and while they were preparing to navigate on direction to New Gadir , they saw a big Taino fleet (with Phoenician ship design!) rapidly sailing in direction to Oq’Yqayo, the now undefended capital of the Great Republic. Quickly enough they diverted their course to Cancun, but was too late, the Taino were already disembarking at the capital of the Odiq’e.


___________________
Oq Yqayo, 28 December, 123 BCE

The capital of the Great Republic was being sieged by their former allies. And Malchus was marching to relieve the city were his pregnant wife was being threatened by their enemies.


Trained from young age to be a commander, Malchus had been prepared during all his life for his first real battle, but he never expected to have his pregnant wife under the threat of his enemies, and now he was furious, so he ordered his troops to attack directly their enemies, and at the fastest speed they could possibly done. There will be no rest for him or his troops while his beloved Sophoniba was in danger.


As the Odiq’e charged into the Taino lines, Malchus identified the guards surrounding the enemy commander and led his men to victory, as Guarionex, the leader and commander of the Taino quickly ordered the disorderly retreat of the invading force, a mistake that could cost them the war, the Odiq’e pursued them, killing the slower ones in the act.

The Great Jawoh ran into the palace to see his wife, Malchus was happy to see that his beloved wife was fine, but was even more surprised to see her holding a small baby in her arms. His heir was born at the same time he won his first battle.


- I called her Tzun, from the word “x ts’unu’um” that the mayans use for the humming bird, according to their leyends, if a man dares to catch that bird, the gods will kill him, and I swore to kill any enemy who dared to even touch my little baby- said Sophoniba while kissing Tzun, who for her first time, smiled. Then she added - My beloved husband, make sure that this don’t happen again, I don’t want our kids to grow in a constantly besieged city.

Malchus smiled. He loved that woman, but now his love increased tenfold, as she not only took care of herself, but of his recently born daugther...and heir.
____________________

Oq Yqayo, 121 BCE

The Odiq’e’s forces had occupied most of the Taino’s territories, and most of the enemy troops went to invade New Tyre, and the war was defined in the final battle of New Gadir, where the Taino finally surrendered, after fourth years of war.

Malchus was satisfied, because he will finally return to his palace with his beloved wife and his daughter, Tzun, born the year before. To secure the control of the subjugated Taino, he granted the Republic of Cubanacan to his father in law, Hampsicora. So now the Phoenician nobility would be busy controlling the islanders, and they will provide the necessary manpower to deal with the always dangerous mayans.


The Great Jawoh was now in solitude, looking at his maps, planning the next move, his next victory...

Chapter 17: Awaken! 116-100 BCE

Chichen Itza, 116 BCE

Malchus Yujnegi was laying siege to the city state of Chichen Itza in a campaign to take that important center of trade from the hands of the locals, suddenly, the general of the enemy forces, a big warrior called Oncan, charged against his position and after killing every member of his guard, challenged him to a duel.


As if losing the duel was not enough, he was taken prisoner and forced to surrender his forces, Áakan Bahlamid, the ruler of Chichen Itza, made Malchus promise that he would respect the truce, or the next time he would be sacrificed alongside all his family, Oncan, the victorious general who defeated him, was treated like the hero he was by the citizens of the mayan city-state.

_______________________________________________
Oq Yqayo, 114 BCE

Malchus felt humiliated, so for the past two years he trained rigorously to improve his skills as a duelist, he wanted to recover his honor and dignity, but first he had to deal with more important matters.

The Mayans of Tulum, a western Mayan city-state had been raiding the lands of the Odiq’e for the last two years and were quick enough so the armies of Malchus never got to catch them, because of that, the Great Jawoh declared war on Tulum and the enemies marched directly into Oq Yqayo, not knowing that they were marching into a trap.

The Odiq’e troops quickly surrounded the mayan positions, and after Malchus and his bodyguards charged into the position of the Halach Wiinik of Tulum, he challenged the enemy leader to a duel. He accepted.


Malchus easily defeated Aj-Koo, the mayan leader of Tulum, and after taking him captive he pardoned his enemy and made him swear to not raid his lands again. Aj-Koo accepted the terms of the treaty, and the Odiq’e gained the province of Tulum as compensation.

The leader of the Odiq’e knew that the wars could make him impopular at the eyes of his subjects, but he didn’t cared, as the also knew that his people needed more land, and that the next generations would be grateful for the sacrifices made by Malchus and his warriors.


____________________________________________________________
Cubanacan, 108- 107 BCE

Hampsicora, the father in law of Malchus and ruler of Cubanacan, turned out to be a bad ruler, so the Odiq’e had to deal with…not one, not two, but four Taino revolts in two years. Malchus brutally suppressed each and every one of the revolts, arranging public executions for any Taino involved in the wars against his rule.


The Great Jawoh planned to end once and for all with the unruly Taino, but Hampsicora died in 107 BCE and his son and successor, Hanno Abdalon, promised that he, as ruler of the Republic of Cubanacan, would restore peace to his domain.

Malchus was about to depose his brother in law because he didn’t trusted him, but then, the Mayans of Tulum raided again his domains, not even three years after the treaty.


____________________________________________________________

Cozumel, 105 BCE

This time the Great Jawoh didn’t wanted to act diplomatically, the Mayans would learn to respect the authority and superiority of his people the hard way. So after taking most of the lands of the Halachi of Tulum, he took the wife and one of the concubines of the enemy leader as his own concubines.

Aj-Koo, the Halach wiinick of Tulum was pissed off, not only was defeated two times by Malchus, now he was dishonored as the Odiq’e had taken his women to himself.


Malchus knew about the pride and anger of his enemy, so he challenged Aj-Koo to a duel.​


The 72 year old mayan leader accepted and died, and again he was no match for Malchus’s skill. But this victory was not complete, as some of the subjects of the Great Jawoh viewed the duel against a decrepit leader as dishonorable.

When he returned to Oq Yqayo, Malchus ordered the construction of a great statue to Zinnridi Yujnegi, his ancestor and founder of the Great Republic.


____________________________________________________________​

Chichen Itzá, 102 BCE

14 years ago, Malchus suffered an humiliating defeat while laying siege to Chichen Itzá, now, he was attacking again the same mayan city state. His beloved wife had died the year before at the young age of 38 years, and as he wanted to avoid depression, he declared war against the mayans of Chichen Itza, the only ones that had defeated him. Revenge could make him forget the pain…


Oncan, the same man who defeated him in the past, was commanding the mayan defense, hiding behind his lines, but Malchus charged anyways against him and then, challenged the mayan general to a duel.​

Malchus won this time, but didn’t wanted to show the same mercy that Oncan offered him in the past.


Jun Kalan, Chief of Uxmal and general of Chichen Itza, then assumed command of the mayan forces and challenged Malchus to a duel, he expected the Odiq’e to be an easy target. He was wrong.​

Malchus killed him.


That was another victory to Malchus. The Odiq’e had conquered Chichen Itza, one of the most importants city-states of the Mayan world, and Malchus was now a famous duelist and general.


But as the armies of the Odiq’e experimented victory after victory, the world around them was changing…

Horlicks is a (somewhat older) British expression which basically means a mess.

Chapter 18: The Two Worlds in 100 BCE

Yucatan


After the arrival of the Phoenicians, the fall of the Olmecs and the rise of the Odiq’e, the exiles gained a foothold on the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula and started to wage war on the mayans, as Dido Yujnegi, the Great Priestess of the Odiq’e predicted years ago.


But the small city-states of the mayans gave way to the first mayan Kingdoms, and now not only the mayans of Ajaw were controlling great extensions of lands, because Canek-Kalan the ruler of the city-state of Tikal, had conquered his neighbors and created the greatest mayan Kingdom until this point on history.


Meanwhile, on the south, Kin of the Lencas founded the Kingdom of Nohol, the only political entity that could oppose Tikal.

Central Europe


100 years ago, the Etrurian League was expanding into the celtic heartlands, now, they have consolidated their dominion into central Europe, taking their place as the biggest empire to ever exist in the Mediterranean. They were now started to settle the Germanic lands, as the local tribes fled before the slow advance of the Etrurians, who for now seemed unstoppable.

The gallic nobility were absorbed into Etruscan society and were also allowed to continue to rule over their subjects, these who didn’t want to be under the foot of the italics fled into the last bastions of the Arverni, far in the fringes of the known lands.

The East


After 100 years of Macedonian supremacy, the small kingdom of Epirus rose to defy their northern rivals and now the Hellenic world was divided into the Spartan Kingdom of Hellas, the Epirotes, the Macedonians and the helleno-tracian Kingdom of Abdera.

Meanwhile, thanks to the Hellenic support, the Lydians managed to kick the babilonians out from their homeland and stopped the rise of the Mesopotamians, who in turn expanded into the Arabian lands. The Kingdom of Armenia had lost most of their territories but somehow managed to survive to the onslaught of the Babylonians and Lydians.

The ancient kingdom of Egypt stayed the same.

Southern Mediterranean


While in center Europe and the east great wars were fought in the last 100 years, in the southern Mediterranean everything stayed more or less the same, Carthaginian supremacy over the region was unquestioned so they enforced the peace on the region. The Phoenician Kingdom of Cartenna collapsed in 120 BCE and their lands were divided by Carthage and Masaesylia.

Hispania


The Turdetani continued to expand and converted themselves into a regional power that expanded even into Africa, but they still had the Celtiberian, other Iberian tribes and even the greek colony of Emporia as rivals to their supremacy. The Carthaginians were their greatest foes in this period of time.
