I would go with B, because since Even though states a fact from past it has to be simple past. Also look at the second part of the sentence which is in simple past.
So, B makes all the sense.

his army had never faced --> past perfect --> requires another event in past tense
secondly, it states a normal fact over in past
option B

Imo B
We need only simple past .
There is no timeline in the sentence .

I was confused between A and B ....selected B by observing non underline part ..."why he never faced any defeat in the first place" --simple past ..
so simple past is require in under lined part also as both are pointing to same time frame.
