Caesar is going to destroy Rome!! We need To kill him.
I'm in, but only for the good of Rome.
The Death of Caesar
En Tu Brute?
I did not kill him because i did not love him, but because I love Rome more.
Caesar and Pompey battle for power after the death of Crassus. Caesar's army defeats Pompey's army leaving him in power. Marullus and Flavius worry that Caesar will become too powerful and declare himself king. Because of the noblemen's disapproval of Caesar being in power, the commoners also do not support him.
Cassius convinces Brutus, with the help of many other conspirators, to help his take out Caesar, for he will become too powerful. He agrees to help kill Caesar for the good of Rome. Brutus then begins plotting the assassination of Caesars along with Cassius and his fellow conspirators. They decide that they will kill him at Senate. Cassius also throws in the idea to kill Mark Antony Along with Caesar, but Brutus refuses.
At the Capitol, the conspirators surround Caesar, as planned, preparing to stab him. Casca is the first to stab him. All of the conspirators take turns stabbing Caesar, saving Brutus for last. Brutus stabs Caesar, causing his last words, "En tu Brute?" (Even you Brutus?). Then watches Caesar collapses to the ground, officially dead.
Brutus truly was an honorable man. We need to have a funeral for him.
At Caesar's funeral, both Brutus and Mark Antony each give a speech to the townspeople. Brutus tells the town that he did not kill Caesar because he did not like him, but that he loves Rome more. Instead of being sympathetic of Caesar, Mark Antony is very brutal in his speech. Antony tells the crowd that he has not come to praise Caesar, but to bury him. He also blames Brutus for the tragic death, which angers the crowd
The tension between Mark Antony and Brutus builds causing them to battle. Mark Antony along with Lepidus and Octavius are preparing for battle with Brutus and his companions. Brutus and Cassius are also preparing an army to go up against Mark Antony. In combat, Pindarus tells Cassius that Brutus' side has taken Titinius. Because of this, Cassius orders Pindarus to kill him, for they are going to face defeat. Titinius was in fact not taken, but because Cassius is now dead he also kills himself.
Now that both Cassius and Titinius are dead Brutus feels that he has no chance of victory. Since there is no chance of victory for Brutus, he kills himself as well with the help of Strato. Mark Antony realizes that Brutus has killed himself and that he killed Caesar for the sake of Rome, not for selfish reasons like the others. Antony now says that Brutus was a truly honorable man after is it too late. He also orders a funeral to be held for Brutus
