These people have long inhabited the western coasts of North Africa. Though they are Berbers they are the darkest coloured of the Berbers. The Maures are often associated with other tribes that dwell just below the Atlas mountains. These are the Nigrete and the Pharusii. The Maures existed as an indepent kingdom for a long time before their last king gave his country to Rome upon his death. The Maures later came under the dominion of the Massylian kings at which time raids were launched upon the Africans down the coast and the Canary Islands were explored. The Africans down the coast were negroid and were often traded with by the Carthaginians. The Canary Islands were believed to be uninhabited at the time but later evidence proves it was inhabited by stone age Berbers who had migrated there around 1000 BC.
The Numidae, meaning 'nomads', were a group of Berber people living in western North Africa in modern day Tunisia and Algeria. They lived a semi-nomadic lifestyle as hunters and herders and were often at odds with the more 'civilized' groups who settled on the coasts. The Numidians were generally divided into their two major factions, the Massylii who controlled the eastern half of Numidia, and the Massaesylii who controlled the western half and the coastline. Born to the saddle and the nomadic lifestyle the Numidians are expert riders and there are few better with a javelin.
The Gaetulii were a group of Berber natives who dwelt south of the Atlas mountains in various oases. They are unusual in being one of the few Berber peoples to be referred to by a designation other than simply 'Libyan' by the Greeks. The Gaetulii consisted of many tribes and are the closest ancestors to modern Berbers. Experts of Saharan lifestyle these men are renowned among the authors of antiquity for their bravery and loyalty and many of them were recruited into the Roman legions.
The word 'Libya' means Africa, and so the majority of Africans came to be known as 'Libyans' to the Greeks. The major distinction that the Greeks made was when it came to colour. They generally referred to all negroid African populations as 'Ethiopians' and all others as 'Libyans'. The Libyans, whom we today call Berbers, dwelt primarily along the North African Coast from the western edges of Egypt to the Atlantic coast. Normally major distinctions were made between these populations by the Greeks and other ancients such as the Numidians, Gaetulians, and Maures. Even the native Egyptians were seen as a seperate population. Thus the term 'Libyan' went from being a general description of all Africans to a specific description of smaller Berber tribes. Some of the most well known of these tribes are the Garamantines who dwelt in the fazan and hunted the troglodytes from four horse chariots, the Maxyans from whom Carthage rented their lands according to the legends, the Maceans who dwelt along the coast near Lepki and wore their hair in a 'mohawk' style, and the Nasamones who dwelt in and around Augila. Herodotus recorded many fascinating stories about these peoples of which some have been proven true, but the majority remain exaggerated myth.
Maure Cavalry are fast moving skirmishing troops typically used by the Carthaginians and Berber chieftains. They are recruited from the most Western provinces of North Africa. A land known by their warriors and their unique fighting style. They are armed with javelins and a sword of North African origin, similar to the Tabouka used these days by the Tuareg people. The Maures are protected by a small leather shield and by a cloak made of animal fur that they use like it was a breastplate. Under this they wear a simple loose tunic with broad borders. As these men are of a higher status than their infantry counterparts they wear jewelry and their cloaks are made from the skins of more exotic and dangerous animals.
They should avoid being sucked into hand-to-hand combat, as they do better in the job of harassing the enemy with their javelins. Their tactics are to pelt the enemy with deadly volleys of javelins, and then swiftly retreat when charged. Should the opportunity arise they are swift and will easily run down any fleeing enemies.
History: Historically, Maures were very similar to their Numidian neighbors. Greek and Roman historians say they were darker than other North African tribes, to the point to be called 'Western Ethiopians'. They were also great warriors and were one of the troops mentioned by Hannibal in his inscription left in Italy. Maure cavalry participated in the Jugurthine War in vast numbers, outnumbering the legions which engaged them at one point.
The Mauretanians had a unique west African kingdom that existed as early as the fourth century BC. They are first mentioned as a unique nation and people when they render assistance to the Numidian Prince Massinissa to help him reach his country in order to quell a civil war. The Mauretanians may have participated in the Third Punic War, but this seems to be an error of sorts based on later writings denying any real contact with Rome prior to the Jugurthine War.
During the Jugurthine war the Mauretanians sided with Jugurtha against Rome at a critical juncture, prolonging the war. Ironically it would be the actions of their king, Bocchus I, that would end the war when he betrayed Jugurtha over to Sulla and Marius. The Mauretanian kingdom came to an end when its last king, Bogud, willed his Kingdom to Rome upon his death. The Maures as a people were to continue until the Muslim conquest of North Africa, wherein they were noted for their courage and their resilience as one of the last native populations to be conquered.
Imported from the regions far south of Aigyptos or from the mountain forests of northwestern Africa, forest elephants are an exceptionally valuable resource in combat, used mainly by the Ptolemaioi and Qarthadastim. Towering over most other creatures, they can easily scare men and horses alike, with both their size and smell, though elaborate bells and trappings often add to their intimidation. Such corps are directed by their own mahouts riding behind their heads, often a native of their own country who has spent at least two years training his beast from capture. The mahout is armored to better protect against the obvious assault that generally comes against him, launched to bypass the thick natural armor of his mount.
Elephants are best used as cavalry screens for your army, where their presence can scare away enemy cavalry. They can also be used to ram through an enemy battle line, though they are less useful when faced with loose order or phalanx infantry. Pyrrhos of Epeiros even innovated a tactic of flank screens when he fought the Romans at Heraklea. Beyond their obvious use against enemy infantry or cavalry, they can also be used in siege combat; battering down gates, though they're highly vulnerable to better prepared installations. Their greatest vulnerability is against skirmishers, slingers and archers, who can pepper them with missiles - eventually toppling them by virtue of their cumulative impact. To counter the effect of enemy skirmishers, it is often wise to array your own in opposition, or to maintain constant attacks upon each individual group.
Historically, the use of elephants in war was largely contained to India, but after the battle of Hydaspes that changed. Though Alexandros never cared over much for the animals, his successors were very much in favor of their use, organizing their own elephants into a distinct corps under their own "elephantarchos". The forest elephant was used in battle after the Ptolemaioi dynasty established itself in Egypt. Being cut off from India by their Seleukid rivals, the Ptolemaioi needed another source of elephants and sent expeditions to the Horn of Africa to gather Forest Elephants and later they established 'elephant stations' to make sure the Ptolemaic armies were well supplied.
Qarthadastim also used forest elephants in war and they seem to have begun using them around 300 BC. The forest elephants were captured in the Tunisian mountain forests, but the Carthaginians also imported elephants from the Seleukides and Ptolemaioi, which might indicate the native herds were not enough to supply the Carthaginian elephant corps.
The Forest Elephant was smaller in size and strength compared to the Indian elephant. The battle of Raphia is often used as an example of the Indian elephant's superiority, as Antiochos III elephants routed Ptolemaios IV elephants, yet it's important to remember that Ptolemaios IV elephants were outnumbered at that battle.
A side effect of the Ptolemaic use of elephants caused the kingdom of Meroe to also start to tame and use elephants during the Hellenistic period, a practice they eventually taught to the Ethiopians as well. The forest elephants could be found in north-western and eastern Africa, but after the Romans conquered north-western Africa they hunted the forest elephant there to extinction due to their love for using them in circus and the arenas.
Despite their great usefulness when properly employed, it was not unusual for elephants to cause defeat for those who employed them. If an enemy was clever enough to devise their own means to combat elephants, as was the case at the battle of Gaza when Ptolemaios planted an 'iron spiked minefield' to ward off elephants, or when Caesar properly utilized slingers and Scipio gaps between his infantry cohorts to channel the elephants, they could be defeated and even turned against their masters. Even pigs were used on occasion, released among elephants who were often scared of their comparatively small, darting forms. However, despite the many different weapons and stratagems being devised to fight them and the huge expenses required to maintain them, the elephant was still considered a valuable asset, maintained widely. The Arche Seleukeia even developed a corps of "elephant guards", whose task was simply to defend the beasts in combat.
