Gaius Julius Caesar is one of the most famous men in history. The self-proclaimed Dictator had ideas well ahead of his time, and much of what he both did and did not do is the foundation for the way societies are run to this day. He rose to power for the way societies are run to this day. He rose to power quickly and extended the reach of the Roman world. At a time when armies were paid primarily in gold and land, he amassed one of the most loyal and successful armies the world had ever seen. Some worried his immense popularity and king-like behavior would eventually make him too powerful and feared for the good of Rome. A plot was hatched by a group of angry Senators, led by Cassius and Brutus, to assassinate Julius with knives they had hidden in the folds of their togas. The plot was famously successful on the Ides of March 44 BC. Civil war ensued, and the rulers who followed Julius Caesar forever shaped the course of Rome and western civilization as we know it.
