Beware the Ides of March... Rome’s most famous dictator, Julius Caesar’s quest for power started when he was only sixteen. In his rise to power, he led the Romans to conquer Gaul, introduced the Julian Calendar, and build bridges across the German Rhine. Along with his military success, Caesar formed the First Triumvirate with Crassus and Pompey to consolidate political power, and used this as a stepping stone to become a dictator. Caesar was assassinated by Roman senators in 44 B.C. The event lives on today in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.
