Ramses II. The gothic invasion of Rome: Corruption drove the hungry horde of Visigoths to rebel against Rome, and drove the Emperor Valens, heading a fractured Roman Empire, to take them on without support. Hail Caesar!: Of all Rome's many battles, perhaps the most important was internal. When Julius Caesar went head-to-head with Gnaeus Pompey, the outcome would change the fate of the Western World. Herman the German: The patrician leader Arminius, or Herman the German, was at the helm of one of the darkest ambushes in the history of Rome, dispelling the aure of invincibility that had long marched ahead of the vaunted legions. Marathon: The first great invasion of the Persian empire was not thwarted by the Spartans, but by Athenians. In a heroic effort, the hoplite warriors of the city-state triumphed in a fight against both greater numbers and the march of time. Ramses II: As one of Egypt's greatest pharaohs, Ramses II confronted the biggest menace to his reign as the Hittite King Muwwitallah threatened to break away from the hegemony of the Egyptian empire.
