General Knowledge: Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar being murdered by members of the Roman Senate
Julius Caesar is one of the best known politicians and war generals history. He was born in a noble but poor Roman family, and made his fortune and reputation first as a soldier. Eventually, he became a great General in the Roman Army, conquering many lands. He was a member of the First Triumvirate with Pompey and Crassus, and as such he was one of the most powerful men in Rome. Ultimately, he fought a great Civil War with Pompey to have complete power over Rome, and ruled for four years afterwards as Dictator. On the Ides of March (March 15th), 44 B.C., he was assassinated by a conspiracy of Senators, including Brutus, because he was a threat to the Roman Republic. A few years later the Republic ended and the Empire began, when Octavius Augustus became the first emperor of Rome.
The month "July" is named after him!
