Third season of the Kings and Generals animated historical documentary series on the Early Muslim Expansion starts with the aftermath of the battles against the Sassanid and Eastern Roman empires at Yarmouk and al-Qadisiyyah (https://youtu.be/r2cEIDZwG5M) and battles of Ctesiphon, Alexandria, Nikiou, Jerusalem, Sufetula, Heliopolis, and Nahavand (https://youtu.be/baHT2nR5Wr4). We are going to cover the aftermath of the beginning of the First Fitna (Civil War) in the Rashidun Caliphate (https://youtu.be/5a6PyMTLL1E) and the battle of Siffin of 657, which led to the rise of the Umayyad Caliphate (https://youtu.be/FVkTzYmoIoI), external expansion continued with the siege of Constantinople in 674-678, but this didn't stop the Second Fitna from happening, leading to the battles of Karbala (680) and Marj Rahit (684) (https://youtu.be/BZa_HjChaS0). We also previously talked about the conclusion of the Second Fitna and the rise and fall of the Zubayrid Caliphate (https://youtu.be/gteP2lmh42U). In this episode the armies of the Caliphate return to the frontiers, clashing with the crumbling Byzantine Empire in Armenia and North Africa. In the latter, they would not find opposition not just in the Roman remnant, as the rise of a new warrior queen among the Berbers posed a serious challenge to Hassan ibn al-Nu’man’s conquering army in the Maghreb. And even as the Umayyads won victories on the battlefield and expanded ever further, the cohesion and unity of their empire continued to deteriorate on their Eastern frontiers, planting the seeds of their eventual collapse. And we will also discuss how Carthage was razed once again.
