  • I will miss you, when I'm in the army, Cornelia.
  • I demand that you raise my ransom! I am worth much more than that!
  • I will miss you, Cornelia. I wish you were here to see me as consul
  • Caesar married Cornelia, the daughter of a noble, and had drawn the ire of Rome's dictator, Sulla, who ordered the young Roman to divorce his wife or risk losing his property. Caesar refused and escaped to the military.
  • Ok, then.
  • Pompey and Crassus, you should be allies, not enemies
  • Caesar returned to Rome to begin his career in politics as a lawyer working for the prosecution. He relocated temporarily to Rhodes to study philosophy, but while travelling, he was captured by pirates. And he convinced his captors to raise his ransom.
  • I will defeat you, Pompey!
  • Our son, Caesarion, is so well behaved.
  • Cornelia, passed away in 69 BC. Caesar's political ascendency, however, continued. In 61-60 BC he served as governor of the Roman province of Spain. He continued his alliance with Pompey, which allowed him to get elected as consul in 59 BC
  • Please don't ... ughh!
  • Over the years Pompey and Crassus had come to be intense rivals. Caesar negotiated, earning the trust of both men and convincing them they'd be better as allies instead of enemies. This partnership among the three men came to be known as the First Triumvirate.
  • Through a series of events, Caesar eventually went to war against Pompey, leading troops across the river Rubicon in 49 BC. Caesar had pursued Pompey into Egypt, where he was eventually killed. Caesar aligned himself with Cleopatra had a son, Caesarion.
  • Gaius Cassius Longinus and Marcus Junius Brutus were both former enemies who'd joined the Senate. Together, the two of them led the assassination of Caesar on the Ides of March (the 15th), 44 BC.
