Historical details:

In 149 BC the unpopular PRUSIAS II was dethroned by his son NICOMEDE II who took possession of the Kingdom with the help of ATTALE II of Pergamum.

He quickly became popular, but during his reign, Bithynia was influenced by Roman power.

Bithynia became a Roman province in 74 B.C.
