Looking for a good solo/solovariant wargame set in ancient or medival times.
I don't want to play both sites but play against a simplified AI or events pushing the game forward.
I have tried Field Commander Alexander but it was to simple and it didn't felt like a wargame.
Any suggestion?

it is a recently published mag game.

Agricola, Master of Britain is upcoming and looks exciting (At least to me).

Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar

A really fantastic game, in my humble opinion. Works well solo, too, thanks to generally easy-to-follow flowchart-based artificial intelligence 'bots' that take the role of the Germanic Tribes and up to three other factions (if you are playing by yourself).

Admittedly, I'm a bit of a COIN series fanboy, but I do think this meets your generous criteria.

The very first solo-designed wargame (at least insofar as I know) is The Fall of Rome from 1973.

Also, Mark Herman's Peloponnesian War from 1991.

Another one set in the Roman times, it is a simple PnP game:

Germania: Drusus' Campaigns 12-9 BC
