Summary: During the days of Kronus, Herculeum was the capital city of South Africa,
a province of Rome. Following the strategy of Kronus Maximillius (3:24:10-61), Drakonia
launched a brilliant counter-offensive siege against Rome, first attacking Herculeum,
then several other garrisons of South Africa (3:25:1-11). The invasion was an unprecedented
success, with reports of Rome losing up to half of all its wealth (3:25:22). The
Emperor honored Kronus by giving him the rank of Imperial Knight, and appointing
him First Imperial Councilor (3:25:17-19).
