Successfully completing these things, feeding in the soul courage and hatred of the Romans, Hamilcar in search of a convenient pretext for the war has made that he was sent at the head of the army in Spain; there he took with him his son Hannibal nine years. In addition, when it was Hasdrubal - noble and handsome young man, of whom some said, if Hamilcar loved it more sinful than fitting. Of course, how can a great person to avoid blasphemy gossip! Because of these conversations guardian of mores forbade Hasdrubal be at Hamilcar, but he gave the young man for his daughter, and then by Carthaginian tradition could no longer prohibit the father-in-law to deal with. I mention this case because Hamilcar the son in law after the death of his headed the army made great things and became the first commander, whose generosity has corrupted the morals of the ancient Carthaginians. After his death, the army handed over the command of Hannibal. So Hamilcar crossed the sea, reached Spain and taking advantage of a favorable fate, courted a great deal of success: having won the largest and most warlike tribes, he provided horses, weapons, people and money across Africa. He was killed in a battle with Wetton in a time when war was planning to move to Italy, 9-year stay in Spain. Fixed his hatred to the Romans, it seems to largely contributed to the beginning of the Second Punic War, for his son Hannibal due to persistent spells father got such beliefs that would rather die than give strength to compete with the Romans "(Hamilcar, 1-4, trans. NN Trukhina).
