The ancient world. It is a time of remarkable advances in thought and invention and a time of absolute law and brutal conquest. As the ancient kings vie for power and scheme to expand their domains, their generals fight to turn those schemes into reality, and the map of the world continues to change. From Cyaxares of Medes to the great Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, each ruler is fair and ruthless in different measure. Beneath the power and ambition, though, lies the beating hearts of men, with their emotions often uncontrollable and their weaknesses all too apparent. All around them their wives, concubines, children, servants, slaves and soldiers try to live, prosper or simply survive under often tyrannical rule. Wars are planned, battles are fought, treaties are negotiated, marriages arranged and brutal punishment is meted out as empires rise and fall.
