Antony says “when the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept...did this in Caesar seem ambitious... I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse; was this ambition... I should do Brutus wrong, and Cassius wrong, who, you all know are honorable men: I will not do them wrong; I rather choose to wrong myself and you, than I will wrong such honorable men...”. His speech is to show that Caesar was indeed not going to take the crown, yet Brutus and Cassius kept insisting that he would, which was their whole justification on the murder, and they are honorable. His use of ethos was very
During the play, the conspirators attempt to predict what kind of leader Caesar will become after he gains the title of dictator. In the beginning of the play, Caesar notices Brutus speaking with Cassius at the race.

Such men are dangerous” (I.ii.204-205).
Agrippina the Elder was the granddaughter of the first Roman emperor, Caesar Augustus and child of the arranged union between Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa and Julia, the emperor’s only daughter (Gagarin 53). Since Augustus had no other children, succession to the throne was left to his grandchildren and, when Agrippina was of age, he arranged for her to marry Germanicus, grandson of his sister, Octavia, and a famous and respected Roman military commander (Salisbury 3). They had nine children together with six surviving to adulthood (Gagarin 53).

The name Romulus Augustus references both the first king and the first emperor of Rome, who were beloved in the eyes of their subjects, and with a monumental name to live up to, it was unfeasible for Romulus Augustus to triumph in the Romans's eyes. Romulus Augustus's one year reign was extraordinarily underwhelming and lacking in any tremendous discoveries or conquests, and much of it was not recorded by historians. As one reflects back on the past Roman leaders, it is clear to see Romulus Augustus, although he indubitably affected Rome in its destruction, had no colossal achievement to put his family into a permanent place of nobility as his father had once outlined. Romulus was born in 463 AD and was the son of Orestes, a major general of the Roman army. Orestes was an assistant to Attila the Hun, but once he died Orestes joined the western army and climbed to a high position.

Several busts depict Agrippina with physical
