    I saw on PoMs video that the prologue takes place in 437 BC. Romans fighting Samnites in 437 BC... riiiiight...

    There were 3 Samnite Wars
    - First Samnite War (343 to 341 BC)
    - Second (or Great) Samnite War (326 to 304 BC)
    - Third Samnite War (298 to 290 BC)

    ...so yea, CAs about 90 years too early for the first one. Odd that they just didn't adjust the start date for the prologue.

    It's about a fictional general, voiced by Mark Strong. Considering also the few lines heard in the related videos, history has nothing to do with any of that :P
    That earlier date might even be a deliberate choice to emphasise how it's all made up...
