  • I am Jessy the Jester, and today I am going to tell you about how Rome went from a republic to an empire.
  • It all started with Rome's first Triumvirate of 3 rulers - Caesar, Crassus, and Pompey. They each had equal power but then then Crassus and Pompey were concerned with Caesar.
  • Crassus and Pompey where is my seat?
  • You are ordered to resign at once.
  • I will on one condition. You need to resign as well!
  • Caesar I want you to resign!
  • Pompey told Caesar to resign but it did not work.
  • After refusing to resign they go to war and Caesar defeats Pompey. But then Caesar's dead body was then found on March 15, 44 BC.
  • Oh my what ever could have happened here?
  • After Caesar's death the next Triumvirate was formed by his friend Marc Antony, his adopted son Octavian and one of his top generals Marcus Lepidus.
  • I am Mark Antony, and this is my love Cleopatra. Right now she is taking her "needed" beauty sleep. On yeah and this man next to me is Caesar's adopted son, Octavian.
  • This triumvirate did not last long. Lepidus retired and Marc Antony and Octavian got into a fight.
  • You and Cleopatra are trying to take over and I won't let it happen. I declare war on you Marc Antony .
  • Bring it on Octavian! You will never defeat me!
