The Assassination of Julius Caesar

 

It’s a story we are all familiar with. A story of loyalty, betrayal, idealism, and cynicism. The date of the event is forever burned into the collective consciousness. Plays have been written about it, movies and T.V. shows have reenacted the events, and historians have been fascinated by the factors that led to the historic event that took place on the Ides of March in 44 B.C.E.

 

Today’s story is about the assassination of Julius Caesar and the impact his death would have on the flailing Roman Republic.
