Siege of Alexandria - Total War: Rome II (Cinematic Machinima)

The major Mediterranean port of Alexandria, the capital of the Byzantine province of Egypt, was permanently seized from the Byzantine Empire by forces of the Rashidun Caliphate in the middle of the 7th Century AD. This marked the end of Eastern Roman maritime power over the Eastern Mediterranean and thus brought about a decisive geopolitical shift, also spreading the Rashidun's control further.
