One of the biggest defeats in the Roman Empires history the battle of Carrhae 53 BC RomanParthian War

Previously we have made an animate historical documentary on the battle of Nisibis between the Roman and the Parthian empires. But that battle was far from first - two empires started fighting immediately after their borders touched and that war led to the iconic battle of Carrhae in 53 BC, during which the Romans of the triumvir Marcus Crassus fought against the Parthians of Surena.

DiscordChaos : The Parthians had the infinite ammo cheat enabled. Imagine being rewarded for winning a great victory by being executed though...

I'm not flat, stop asking : RIP crassus and his noob box formation.

Darth Enigma : Crassus: Don't worry they'll run out of arrows eventually! *2 hours later* Roman: They're not running out of arrows!!

ArchEnema 67 : The ancient Near East had more Mithradates than Medieval Europe had Henrys.

napolien 1 : Surena: "yes I've defeated the undefeated Romans now I returned to my king for the good news" Orodes II: "capture him and kill him for treason" Surena: "oh"

Culius Jaesar : Crassus take a snickers . You are acting like you have caesar's military genious mind when you are hungry.

Darth FatCow : *As an appropriate reward for this great service, Oredes had him executed* Lmao

Daniel Santos : Parthians: Open console Unlimited_ammo

Joden Paolo Peroy : 11:15 Jesus, that envoy has balls of steel to goad them like that 20:00 Wtf Also, thank you for maintaining that graphical roll-call of the units. It looks outstanding!

Farbod Achamenian : Even to this day children in Iran are named after Surena , that's how much of a legend he is among Iranians.

Van Hendrix : Never outshine the master. Surena became a threat to the King

NinjaSheep : Somebody off screen keeps throwing gladii at important figures. It’s very dangerous pls stop D:

Tano : VARO GIVE ME BACK MY LEGIONS! Ops... wrong battle.

hamidious : Dick move by Parthian king to kill his best general. I don't think he expected him to survive the battle.

Liquidsback : Cassius: The King of Armenia says we can pass through his Kingdom. Crassus: Ohhhh, all those hills.....

Malay Archer : Working with this documentary made me realize how strong the Parthians were ever since the beginning of their establishment. The early Parthian kingdom became a vassal state under Seleucid king - Antiochus III after his conquest in Parthia but a few years later, the Parthians managed to beat the Seleucids afterward and transform the small Parthian kingdom into a mighty Empire. As always, here are ROME II and Attila mods which we used solely for this video: - Caesar in Gaul reskin - Divide et Impera - Benjin's AAA Roman General - Avetis Eastern Culture Overhaul - Mobjay's Golden Emblem - GEMFX - Petellius' Enhanced Particle Attila TW: - Ancient Empires Best wishes, Malay Archer ڤمانه ملايو

Ionut Buftea : Guy kills 30k romans and inflicts the most severe defeat on them since Hannibal, and get rewarded by having his head chopped off by his king. So much for loyalty.

saltyshanker : 19:51 reminds me of when Arminius was killed by his own people :(

Neutron Alchemist : Messenger: "Caesar! Crassus had been defeated in Parthia!" Caesar: "I bet he didn't build a wall."

Saksham Pandey : When you're a noob who just figured out the box formation, But your opponent is a Chad Eastern faction expert and a real life Genghis Khan.

ga pavds : Achaemenid Dynasty - kings Cyrus,Darius and Xerxes Parthian Dynasty - kings Mehrdad(Mithridates) and Farhad (Pharaates) Sasanian Dynasty - kings Shapour and Khosrow ( Great king of kings of Persia )

Callum Rhodes : Historia Civilis made a great video about this a while ago. It is an interesting battle to analyse the mistakes made.

Mrkabrat : "They should be running out of arrows about now" last words of centurion Naughtius Maximus

Doom Doomi : Actually we Iranians still use the embassador's statement to say something is impossible
