What is Barbarians Rising about?
Barbarians Rising tells the story of the rise and fall of the Roman Empire from the perspective of the barbarian rebel leaders.
It is a visceral journey into the heart of a wave of rebellions against absolute power.
The Roman Empire called them “barbarians”—tribes the Romans viewed beyond the fringe of civilization that lived a brutish and violent existence.
However, these were also men and women who launched epic struggles that shaped the world to come.
Barbarians Rising chronicles the rise of the Barbarians.
What characters can you expect to see in Barbarians Rising?
Barbarians Rising features nine of history’s greatest warriors:
- Hannibal, who vowed a blood oath at the age of nine;
- Spartacus, the slave-turned-rebel who led a barbarian revolt;
- Boudica, the Celtic warrior Queen;
- Arminius, the stolen son of Germany;
- Attila, scourge of the east;
- The Goths, a fierce fighting people betrayed by the empire; and
