Hey all genmay gamers. If any of you were into strategy games pre-2000 try to help me out to name this game.

I can't recall the name of this strategy game I played as a kid. It was pre-2000 (Probably 1997/1998). It was a turn-based strategy game of older times (ancient - pre 1900s, not sure).

I want to find it because at the time, as a kid, I thought it was TERRIBLE and I'm curious to know what this game that I hated was called.

The most important clue: The opening intro video had an emperor(I think), Roman(I think) getting stabbed and killed. But all you see is the shadow of the person getting stabbed.

I'm thinking it's obscure.
Any help?
