Quintus Fabius Maximus

Quintus Fabius Maximus lived about 280–203 BC. Rome was ruled by elected men called consuls. Usually two men ruled at once. Quintus Fabius Maximus was elected by the Roman people out of terror from Hannibal, an excellent general from Carthage and rival of Rome.

Fabius was nicknamed Warty and Lamb as a boy and even as an adult he took things slow and steady.

We are using AO's notes for our study of Fabius and the set the backdrop: the chapters Picking a Fight and The Boot Kicks and Stamps from A Child's History of the World by V.M. Hillyer.



Wishing you homeschool blessings,
Bethany
