Follow your guide on this fascinating journey through Julius Caesar’s life, from the conquest of Rome to the time of his death.
Julius Caesar, in full Gaius Julius Caesar, was probably the most celebrated Roman general and statesman of all time. He was launching a series of political and social reforms when he was assassinated by a group of nobles in the Senate House on the Ides of March. Caesar changed the course of the Greco-Roman world's history decisively and irreversibly. Caesar’s name, like Alexander’s, is still on people’s lips throughout the Christian and Islamic worlds and even people who know nothing of Caesar as a historic personality are familiar with his family name as title signifying a ruler who is in some sense uniquely supreme or paramount.
