Storyboard Text

  • Julius Caesar and Marcus Antonius
  • Antonius's Victories
  • Antonius's Defeats
  • Why?!
  • Marcus Antonius was assigned as a staff officer to Julius Caesar from 52-50 B.C. When returning home, Antonius was appointed Tribune. He would be representing the people's opinions and views. Later on Antonius stood alongside Caesar in several battles between him and Pompey. Caesar would then be stabbed to death in the Roman Senate in 44 B.C.
  • Antonius's Death
  • 57 to 54 B.C.E.: Joined the military as a horseback rider and became successful during battles in Greece. 54 B.C.: Helped Caesar during war in Gaul. 49 B.C.E.: Supplied materials to soldiers during Caesar’s battles leading up to Pompey. 44 B.C.: Became in charge after Caesar’s death, but this eventually led to a falling-out with one of Caesar’s relatives (Octavian).
  • Shakespeare's Marc Antony
  • 46 B.C.: Loses influence under Caesar’s rule for period of two years 31 B.C.E:. Loses during a fight at the Gulf of Ambracia to Octavian 30 B.C.E.: Loses to Octavian in Egypt, where he eventually kills himself
  • Shakespearean Parallels
  • Who are you?
  • He stabbed himself, which proved fatal. He was in Alexandria at the time of his death. Alexandria was the capital of his military affairs. Octavian’s troops cornered Antony into Egypt, and allowed Antony to believe that Cleopatra has died.
  • His character is is constantly trying to appeal to Caesar, and he can be very clever. For example, his speech at Caesar's funeral became a way for him to explain his reasons for believing that he, Marcus Antony, should be put into power. His speech causes people to begin fighting amongst each other, but this was actually part of Antony’s plan.
  • His relationship with Cleopatra inspired Shakespeare to write another play, Antony and Cleopatra. Octavian claimed that Antony had an affair while being married to his wife, Octavian’s sister. Antony killed himself after believing that Cleopatra had died and that he could not escape Octavian, and Cleopatra killed herself after Antony’s death. This has a very similar parallel to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
