It is widely accepted that Julius Caesar was born around July 13 of one hundred B.C. Because of his father’s sudden death in 85 BC, Caesar became the head of his own family when he was 16. He was right in the middle of a civil war among his uncle Marius and the Roman dictator Lucius Cornelius Sulla. Pirates kidnapped Julius Caesar in 75 B.C. while crossing the Aegean Sea on his way to Rhodes to study philosophy and oration. In 69 B.C., he became military tribune and quaestor of a Roman province.

In the following year, Caesar was appointed governor of Spain. With Pompey and Marcus Licinius Crassus, Caesar was elected consul in 59 B.C. due to his military and political successes. As governor of Gaul (north-central Europe) in 58 B.C., Caesar was in charge of an enormous army. At this time, Caesar wiped out Pompey’s last allies in the Middle East, Africa, and Spain. He became Rome’s dictator for ten years in 46 B.C., shocking his political rivals and paving the way for the fall of the Roman Republic later that year.

In the eyes of many, Caesar was a superb leader who had a good understanding of the human condition. Julius Caesar was killed on the “ides of March” (March 15) 44 BCE by around 40 Roman senators. William Shakespeare wrote a depiction of Julius Caesar’s life and legacy, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, in 1599.
