Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Achaean War was an uprising by the Greek Achaean League, A alliance of Achaean and other Peloponnesian states in ancient Greece, against the Roman Republic around 146 BC, just after the Fourth Macedonian War. Rome defeated the League swiftly, and as a lesson, they destroyed the ancient city of Corinth. The war ended with Greece's independence taken away, and Greece became the Roman provinces of Achaea and Epirus. The Roman empire had developed close ties to the League of Achaeans through similar religious and military beliefs and a cooperation in the previous Macedonian War. But, the ties were soon disturbed after a series of disputes and interference in the decision making of the league by the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire insisted that the city of Sparta be released from the protection and inclusion in the league. The Spartans had become increasingly opposed to the power that the League held, especially with their relations of the increasingly powerful Romans.
