The Siege and Battle of Alésia (52 BC)

Gaul (which approximately corresponds to today’s France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland , Italy and Germany) was mainly under the dominance of Rome. When the tribe of the Eburones (certainly living around the Dutch Limburg region) rebelled against Rome and annihilated the famous XIV Legion, a feeling of rebellion spread the pacified Gallic tribes.
