Julius Caesar and his armies conquered Gual in 58 B.C. He became very popular and later led his soldiers into Rome and he became dictator for life.
Julius Caesar gave land and grain to the poor. He revised the Roman calendar. He also granted citizenship to foreigners and increased the number in the Senate.
thank you ,Sir.We owe you our lives.
you're very welcome.
Caesar ignored a warning to,"beware the Ides of March," on March 15. On that date in 44 B.C.,his enemies surrounded him at the Senate building and stabbed him to death.
See what happened for ignoring the warning?Look at you now,dead.
Civil war followed Caesars death. His grandnephew Octavian and the generals Antony and Lepidus defeated his killers in 43 B.C.Octavian forced Lepidus to retire and divided the Roman world between themselves.Octavian took West,and Antony East.
Antony soon fell in love with Cleopatra.Then,he formed an alliance with her.Octavian told the Romans that Antony would make himself the ruler of the republic with Cleopatra's help.This news alarmed the Senate,which then supported Octavian in a war against Antony.
I can't believe what i'm hearing!
Octavian crushed Antony's and Cleopatra's army and navy at the battle of Actium in 31 B.C. The couple then fled to Egypt,and they killed themselves there. Octavian now had power of the Roman world.
After Octavian won, he was named imperator. Octavian had the veto to any law, rule all Roman provinces, and to control the army. The senate gave Octavian the name Augustus. He set about reforming the government, creating a permanent army and navy, and reorganizing the empire.
