Jugurtha, d’hier à aujourd’hui : du résistant berbère à « l’éternel Jugurtha » : le passé pour servir le présent

Abstract : Abstract The figure of Jugurtha immortalized by Salluste in the Bellum Jugurthinum is one of the pride of North Africa. As much in the time, as in the contemporary era this numid king is still taken as a model. During the French colonization, it is the symbol of the Berber resistance fighter against the Roman penetration. His figure is a standard against the French occupier who finds himself facing the Berber resistance fighter who became the Eternal Jugurtha. After the independence of the North African countries, Jugurtha became a reference for certain leaders who defined themselves as successors to the Berber king. Finally, nowadays, Jugurtha is a pride of the Amazigh people. How was the figure of Massinissa's grandson exploited during the French colonization of Algeria? How did it become a political reference in the aftermath of independence? And how is it perceived by the Amazigh people today?
