Cycaes was the capital of the Kingdom of Cycaenae and one of the most powerful and largest cities in the old world. It was located on Lake Chad.


Cycaes was founded in 49 BCE by Quick Warrior tribesmen. Neighboring villages of Sicans and local tribes quickly joined the great city as it grew over the next 20 years, until it become an ancient metropolis like that of Rome.


Cyceaes surpassed Rome in terms of population in 289 AD, having over 1.5 million residents. It was the richest city in Africa at its peak as well as the largest military, scientific, and cultural hub in Africa.
