Carthage was an ancient city-state situated on the Gulf of Tunis in North Africa; it was established in the 9th Century BC.

One of its most famous sons is Hannibal, a Carthaginian military leader who famously marched an army of men and elephants across the Alps to invade Italy.

Today, what little remains of the ancient city is located in one of the suburbs of Tunis, the capital of Tunisia.
