Historical context

Gaius Julius Caesar who was born in 100 BC was one of the greatest military leaders of the Roman Republic.
He showed determination and ruthlessness from a young age; as he was kidnapped by pirate; he told them over and over that once free, he would hunt them down. When Caesar was ransomed he kept his 'promise' and had them all crucified. Caesar initially entered the priesthood but when Sulla purged supporters of the Popular ideology, which Caesar followed he was removed from his position. He joined the army and quickly rose through the ranks and after Sulla's death he returned to Rome.
He was, thanks to having trained as an orator, brought into the realm of politics where he showed that was a skilled public speaker and soon became famous. Then he was elected to the position of military tribute he soon got to know the richest man in Rome, Crassus. Together they joined with the Pompey the Great and formed the First Triumvirate, splitting the rulership of Rome between them.

In 58 BC, Caesar invaded Gaul and started an eight-year-long series of campaigns.

  • In 58 BC Ceasar fought and defeated the Celtic Helvetii and the Germanic Subii.
  • In 55 BC He crossed into Germania and later that year he also crossed the English Channel.
  • In 54 BC the First Triumvirate was dissolved as Crassus died in battle.
  • In the winter of 54-53 BC the Eburones tribe, under its leader Ambiorix. rebelled against Rome but was in the end defeated.
  • In early 52 BC, Caesar had to deal with a revolt led by Vercigetorix who caused Caesar much hardship but that the Battle of Alesia Caesar finally bought Vercingetorix to his knees and took him as a prisoner.

Pompey concerned at Caesar growing power and popularity, made the Senate order him to return and be stripped of power and tried for offences committed in Gaul. Caesar, however, set off towards Rome and in 49 BC he stood before the Rubicon river and before he crossed with his legion, he said "Alea iacta est"(let the die be cast) and ignited a civil war. Caesar entered Rome where he became dictator in October 49 BC.
After the Battle of Pharsalus in 48 BC Pompey fled to Egypt and was killed. Caesar only learned about Pompey's murder when the landed in Egypt where he also met Cleopatra who would give him the son, Caeasarion.

On March 14th 44 BC Caesar appeared at a session of the Senate where the senators attacked him. Blinded by blood Caesar tripped and fell while the senators continued stabbing him as he lay defenceless, Caesar was stabbed 23 times. It's still unknown if Caesar said anything as he saw Marcus Junius Brutus between his attackers, some claims he in Greek said "Kai su, teknon?"(You too, child?) or "Et tu, Brute?"(And you, Brutus?/ You too Brutus?) while others claimed he said nothing then he saw Brutus but just pulled his toga over his head.
