By age 31, Caesar had fought in several wars and become involved in Roman politics” (“Gauss Julius Caesar Octavia us Augustus” 2). He was a skilled politician, a talented public speaker and an outstanding general. Today, he is regarded as one of the most remarkable figures in Roman history. Julius Caesar was born on July 12, 100 B. C. E. To Gauss Caesar and Aurelia. His father gained moderate political success. The family claimed a long and noble history. Caesar received his education from Cicero, a statesmen and philosopher. When Caesar was 16, his father died.
Marcus was Career’s uncle wrought marriage and he pursued political power by appealing to many of the same groups who had supported Marcus. During Career’s youth, Rome was unstable. “An element of disorder ruled the Republic… ” (Bio 4). Rome could not control their or size or their influence which led to their discredited nobility. Caesar made an effort to coincide with the country’s nobility. Caesar married Cornelia. This made Usual, a Roman military and political leader, mad. He told Caesar to either divorce his wife or lose his property; Caesar refused.
Caesar then escaped into military, serving first in Asia then in Cilia. After the death of Usual, Caesar returned to begin his career in politics. He relocated to study oratory, but on this way, he was captured by Sicilian pirates. The pirates held Caesar captive while Career’s associates were out getting the pirates talents of silver. Caesar began to treat the pirates as if he was in control and the pirates listened. Once his associates returned, Caesar demanded that the pirates be executed, but they ended up being crucified under him.
Caesar then returned to Rome once again. He began to work with Pompom, a former lieutenant under Usual. “Not long after, in 68 or 69 B. C. , Caesar was elected squatters (a base political office) and then went to serve in several other key government positions under Pompom’ (Bio 8). “Julius Caesar himself was guilty of many extra-marital affairs… ” (Gill 14). Caesar was first married to Cornelia, but she died in childbirth. Then, he married Pompeii but then divorced her. Lastly, he married California Pistons until he was assassinated.
Although Caesar was married, he had mistresses. “One of the most significant relations was with Servility Cacophonies, the half- sister of ACTA the Younger” (Gill 14). Because of this relationship which had lessoned from their youth, Plutarch noted that Caesar believed Marcus Genius Brutes to be their illegitimate son. “Julius Caesar was taunted all his life with charges of having been the lover of King Incommodes of Bathing” (Gill 15). “By the time of the First Triumvirate, the republican form of government in Rome was already on its way to monarchy’ (Gill 1).
Before Caesar, Caracas, and Pompom are brought up, there are some events and people to know that led to the Triumvirate. Rome suffered a period of terror. An abundant amount of wealthy people were murdered and their property was taken from hem. Usual, dictator of the time, instigated the terror: “Usual now busied himself with slaughter, and murders without number or limit filled the city. Many, too, were killed to gratify private hatreds, although they had no relations with Usual, but he gave his consent in order to gratify his adherents.
At last one of the younger men, Caucus Mettle’s, made bold to ask Usual in the senate what end there was to be of these evils, and how far he would proceed before they might expect such doings to cease. ‘We do not ask thee,’ he said, ‘to free from punishment those whom thou hast determined to slay, UT to free from suspense those whom thou hast determined to save. “‘ (Gill 2) Usual was the dictator of Rome much longer than he should have been. Gill states that “It was a surprise when he resigned from the position of Rome dictator in 79 B. C.
Usual died a year later” (“The First Triumvirate and Julius Caesar’). Calla’s reign drained the Senate and violence allowed a new alliance to arise. The Beginning of Triumvirate “Between the death of Usual and the beginning of the 1st Triumvirate in 59 B. C. , 2 of the wealthiest and most powerful remaining Romans, Manages Pompeii Magnums (106-48 B. C. ) and Marcus Luscious Caracas (112-53 B. C. ), grew increasingly hostile to each other’ (Gill 6). Both men were backed by their own army. To prevent a civil war, Julius Caesar suggested a 3;way partnership.
They divided the providence to please themselves. Caracas got Syria, Pompom received Spain, and Caesar got Cleanliness, Transalpine Gull, and Lyricism. Caesar and Pompoms relationship bonded after Pompom married Career’s daughter Julia. End of the Triumvirate Julia passed away breaking the cemented friendship between Pompom and Caesar. ‘The triumvirate further degenerated in 53 B. C. , when a Parthian army attacked the Roman army at the Charge, and killed Caracas” (Gill 9). In Gaul, Caesar was still gaining power. “Some senators, notably ACTA and Cicero, were alarmed by the weakening legal fabric.
Rome had once created the office of tribune to give the plebeians power against the patricians. Among other powers, the tribune’s person was sacrosanct (they couldn’t be harmed physically) and he could impose a veto on anyone, including his fellow tribune” (Gill 10). When Caesar was accused of treason, he had both tribunes to back him up. The tribunes forced the vetoes, but then they were done away with and ordered Caesar to return back home to Rome without his soldiers. Caesar Death The Ides of March is commonly known as the date Julius Caesar was assassinated.
He was stabbed to death at a meeting of the senate by conspirators. The conspirators were led by Brutes and Cassias. Caesar was warned that he would be harmed on the Ides of March by a seer. On the Ides of March, Caesar passed the seer and laughed at him. Caesar death was an ending point for the Roman Republic. “Caesar fell at the foot of a statue of Pompom. Assassination by his peers was a tragic end for a man who had fought so long and hard to become unrivalled first man in Rome” (Bodyweight, Gargle, and Delbert p. 65).
