Kingdom of Axum

Historical Overview Section

The Kingdom of Aksum (also known as the Kingdom of Axum, or the Aksumite Empire) was an ancient kingdom located in present-day Eritrea and the Tigray Region of Ethiopia. Ruled by the Aksumites, it existed from approximately 100 AD to 940 AD. The polity was centered in the city of Axum. It grew from the proto-Aksumite Iron Age period around the 4th century BC to achieve prominence by the 1st century AD, and became a major player on the commercial route between the Roman Empire and Ancient India. The Aksumite rulers facilitated trade by minting their own Aksumite currency, with the state establishing its hegemony over the declining Kingdom of Kush. It also regularly entered the politics of the kingdoms on the Arabian Peninsula, and eventually extended its rule over the region with the conquest of the Himyarite Kingdom.

Using the army in ADLG

  • Another pseudo-gallic warband army with some interesting tweaks, not least the 4 non-impetuous Elite Impact swordsmen who can take on most things even in the open, especially when teamed with the Inferior Elephant as a Weird Death Star (WDS)
  • The allies give you more of the same, however the Early Arabs do allow you to squeeze in a few more Camels, which could give you a fairly decent Camel force by operating the 2 Camel-containing commands together.
