Vercingetorix, Caesar's Worst Nightmare | Part 3: Vae Victis

Anthology of Heroes History

Aug 1 2022 • 1 hr 11 mins

"A last alliance against tyranny - the battle for free Gaul" Gaul hung by a thread. As Rome’s grip tightened around their homeland, the Tribal Kings met to discuss their grim reality.  Age-old rivalries were tossed aside for the sake of unity, and Vercingetorix was raised as supreme commander of Gaul. The task ahead of him was monumental. The odds of success - minimal.  But what a song it would be for their ancestors!  This episode follows the epic conclusion to Caesar’s Gallic Wars, including the famous Siege of Alesia.  Help support the show on Patreon!
