Kingdom of Numi-Numidia-(Numidoria) (202BC – 46BC)
The Kingdom of Numidia was formed in 202 BC and lasted around 156 years to 46 BC. It was an Ancient Berber kingdom, and existed in the geographic area of present-day Algeria, along with a small part of Tunisia. It spanned an area of around 5000 square miles.
The Kingdom of Numidia was formed from the original Kingdom of Carthage. The Numidians were divided into two great tribal groups. These were the Massylii in the East and Masaesyli in the West. During the second Punic War, Massylii originally sided with Carthage, while Masaesyli, under the leadership of King Syphax allied themselves with the Roman Empire. However, in 206 BC, the new King of Massylii sided with Rome, leading Syphax to ally himself with Carthage. This would prove a mistake as the Romans would claim victory over Carthage, and hand over Numidia to the Massylii. Thus, King Masnissa would become the first King of the Kingdom of Numidia,
