"Caesar! Beware the Ides of March!"
Julius Caesar has just been elected leader of the Roman Empire. On his way up to the temple he hears someone say to him to beware the Ides of March. He ignores the warning.
Unfortunately, some people are not happy with the new suggestion of Caesar being in power. They are Cassius, Casca, Cinna and a few more. They try and convince a good friend of Caesar's, Brutus to join them. He refuses.
Not happy with Brutus' refusal, Cassius forges letter from the people of Rome trying to convince Brutus that if he would take the challenge he would be doing it for the people. Brutus finally accepts. When they meet at midnight, Cassius says that they should kill Mark Antony, a close friend of Caesar's, but Brutus dissuades him as he said that it would be overkill and unessecary. With that they hatch a plan to kill Caesar.
Caesar's wife Calpurnia tell him to stay at home and not go to the senate that day as she had a dream the night before about Caesar's statue bleeding heavily and the people of Rome were dipping their handkerchiefs and hands in the blood smiling. She took this as a bad omen and feared for Caesar's life. Despite this Ceasar was convinced otherwise and went anyway.
The next day Caesar went to the Senate, against his wife's wishes. There the conspirators were waiting. they each took it in turns to stab Caesar. Brutus took the last blow of the dagger.
Mark Antony was very upset to find Caesar dead. He and Brutus gave speeches and while Brutus gave a well thought out speech explaining the reasoning behind Ceasar's assassination, Mark Antony gave a speech and eventually, being the great orator he was, won the crowd round and turned them against the conspirators.
