Caesar returns from defeating Pompey in a Civil War. Although many of the citizans are glad that Caesar is back some are not, espcially Cassius because he wants to stay in power and not be under Caesar.
"You are condemned of having an itching palm"
A group of Romans have joined together and decided to go against Caesar and plan to kill him, they also try to get everybody in the town to conspire against him.
The group of Romans that were planning to kill Caesar had finally killed him and had stabbed him 8 times and had convinced everybody that they did if for the good of the country.
Cassius and Brutus have a big argument in the tent because Brutus accuses Cassius of being greedy but they soon make up afterwards because they have such a strong friendship.
Brutus and Cassius both kill themselves but when Antony he promises to let Brutus be buried the most honorable way because he was the "noblest Roman of all" and had acted for what was the common good unlike the others who planned to kill Caesar.
Antony, Octavius, and Lepidus are now able to rule Rome now that everybody is dead and can not tell them otherwise.
