  • Gaul was made up of Celtic tribes. Caesar became governor of the provinces of Cisalpine Gaul during He marched forward and tried to make the whole area a Roman province, because he said the tribe declared a threat against the Gallic provinces. Some maintain however, his attack on the Gauls was because of his own ambition, so the Gallic War had begun.

  • Once the Gallic War finally ended, Caesar became involved in the civil war against Pompey which he defeated in Greece in 48 b.c. After that Caesar went to Egypt where he met Cleopatra, and they fell in love. He helped her overthrow the king of Egypt. He then made her king of the land. Egypt also became a  state of Rome. Once he returned, he was made Roman dictator for as long as he lived. 
  • When Caesar was dictator he worked very hard and accomplished much. One of  his most important tasks was the creation of colonies in Italy and the provinces to deal with the problem of the poor plebians and the landless ex-soldiers.

He also added two months on the Roman calendar, which is still used today.
