What race was Hannibal?
>>
>>290331
Whatever you consider the lebanese to be.
>>
>>290331
He was most likely a Carthaginian creole but anyone who comes out and says that he decisively was any specific race is either uneducated or trolling

Xiang Yu fought personally in battles m8 and is renowned in East Asian culture as possessing of great physical strength and tactical acumen.

Meanwhile Tamerlane is..well, has a limp.

Xiang Yu however is best remembered as Asia's Pyrrhus of Epirus: won the battles, lost the politics

Mix of Middle Easterners, Libyans with maybe some admixture of Greek. He totally wasn't black though.

Why couldn't Hannibal be black? What were race relations like in Carthage and in the ancient world at large?

The majority of Carthage were Berbers. Pic related.
>>
>>290374
First of all, there are no native black peoples north of Sahara and Sahara is virtually impassable, so it's statistically unlikely any random man in North Africa 220 BC would be black. There were some of course, but most likely as slaves. Hannibal himself was from Carthage nobility and traced his ancestry up to Tyre, Canaan city on Lebanese coast, and there were no black peoples living there back then.
And the most important thing - there are no sources what say so. It would be impossible for them to fail to mention the men who brought Rome to its knees was black.

>>290374
Why should he be black? How many blacks do you think that live in Tunisia, modern or ancient?
>>
>>290379
If it's french for criollo, and I think it is, it means colonist born in the colony but fully descended from whatever people lives in the metropoli.

Carthage was a colony before gaining independence.

you don't think the Berber people were lightened during the time of the Arab conquest of northern Africa?
>>
>>290442
Arabs were small in numbers.
>>
>>290442
No? How big was Arab influence on Northern Africa? Also I believe Carthaginian nobility weren't so ready to mix with locals.

What you're claiming is unfalsifiable.

It's impossible to know the extent the Berber people were "lightened" by Arab influence.

But black people didnt generally live north of the Sahara. Nubians are the only example I can think of off the top of my head and they're off in southern Egypt.

This is the Berber king Massinissa.

You're welcome

>Why couldn't Hannibal be black?
Because there were almost no black people in North Africa before the introduction of the Camel, and because Hannibal was a Punic Carthaginian originating from the Levant.

>What were race relations like in Carthage
People with Phoenician blood were the ruling class and nobility and the vast majority of the population. Carthage was a trading empire, so foreigners were not unwelcome, but we know that people of mixed ethnicity (Liby-Phoenicians) weren't treated the same as pure Phoenicians. They were basically a separate class of Carthaginian society.
