Although it seemed that after the victory over the Pompeian legates in 49 BC, Julius Caesar was able to permanently control the Iberian Peninsula, since 47 BC the resistance against the new governor of Hispania Ulterior had arisen. The new formal commander Pompey the Younger was supported by the former Caesar's deputy from the period of the conquest of Gaul - Titus Labienus, who had been instrumental to the initial success of the Pompeian party.
