Julius Caesar (100 BC-44 BC)

Post  rosim. on Thu Apr 16, 2015 9:57 am

During Julius Caesar's time in Gaul he gained fame and military experience. Caesar was always willing to face great danger. Now had a powerful army of veterans loyal to him. Fearing Caesar's popularity, leading senators decided that Pompey should rule alone. They voted that Caesar lay down his command and return to Rome as a private citizen. This was unacceptable to Caesar, as it would have left vulnerable to his enemies. He choose to keep his army and moved into Italy by illegally crossing the Rubicon river. Caesar marched on Rome, starting a civil war between his forces and those of Pompey. After defeating Pompey's forces, Caesar was in complete control of the Roman government.

Nice topic!
Julius Caesar was an important personage in the history of Rome. He was a member of the first triumvirate, but since he conquered the Gaul (nowadays France), defeated Pompey's army, and took over the government of Rome, he became the absolute ruler. As a result he was assassinated by being stabbed more than 20 times.
