He is responsible for the destruction of democracy and the wildly unequal distribution of power. His blatant overextension of his rights made him more of a threat to Rome than a valuable influence. He also effectively exploited his own people, and used their unwavering support to further damage the empire’s political system. Caesar Augustus was nothing short of a cruel dictator, and his reign was ultimately detrimental to ancient
He was a republican, and working with other republicans, was trying to remove Caesar from the position of sole dictator (king). Flavus had a negative view on Caesar. This could clearly be seen in the incident where Flavus along with another tribune stole the diadem off of one of Caesar 's statues. The relationship between Caesar and Flavus was substandard. After stripping Flavus of his title of Tribune of the Plebs, he asked his father to disown him, because he had two other more successful sons, but he refused.
Caesar had his flaws, but he was only human. Caesar was seen as a serpent who was ready to strike and create a society that revolved around himself and would keep him at the top. On the contrary, even though the conspirators claim to have had the best intentions of Rome in their conscious and actions when assassinating Caesar, Rome still plunged itself into a civil war that disrupted the peace in the nation. Therefore, was Caesar a menace to society even though he led Rome to victory over Pompey, brought peace and created a sense of nationalism in Rome, and enforced the laws strictly in the case of Metellus Cimber in Act 3, Scene
Could this attitude be one of the reasons Rome was able to destroy it so easy? While I cannot say for certain if the reason Carthage fell was due to its government, I can say that during the time Rome was a republic, it was unstoppable, and Carthage never had that power. It appears to me that governments, when in the hands of the people, work better than monarchies or oligarchies. What do you
He came into rule, wanting to make life better for the people of Rome and give them better odds in the case of something bad happening. My prompt was to elaborate what led to Julius Caesar’s death and how it happened; also supposed to give a reason to why they thought he was killed. Julius Caesar died because of the way he tried to go about ruling Rome; the council did not agree with the way that Caesar was trying to rule and they disagreed with him on more than one occasion, because he had political experience before he became the dictator of Rome. To begin, Julius Caesar was the first dictator in Roman history,causing a lot of problems with the council and the people.
Around 58 B.C Ceasar conquered Gaul, which is modern day Belgium and France. Pompey who was another brilliant military leader all but forced Ceasar to disband his army.

He stabilized the empire, and thus destroyed the republic. His short reign ended what was left of the republic. People contemplate whether or not he was a good leader, and if he is the main reason for the fall. In reality, the fall of the republic was inevitable. Caesar just sped it up slightly.
Describe Whether Caesar Was Portrayed As A "Model Politician" Or A Selfish Dictator From the three prescribed readings it can be said that Julius Caesar was a selfish dictator. What was contained in the reading indicated that Julius Caesar is a man that has hunger for power, a self-centered man, and unwavering dictator. And since even the entire people were no longer pleased with present conditions, they rebelled at his tyranny and would like to defend their liberty . It is crystal clear in all the three documents that Julius Caesar was very selfish who only care about himself and his personal goals. In other words in all the three accounts the message is clear that the view of Julius Caesar was not that of a fair and just politician .Assuming
Antony teaches the crowd about one of Caesar’s great qualities, yet seems to end it in “Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; / And sure he is an honorable man” (3.2.107-108). This seems to contradict the statement. Each one of Caesar’s virtues that Antony list, he provides a counter-view from Brutus. Antony tries to make the crowd notice that Brutus use of ambitious equals tyranny.

The Gallic war from 58 B.C. to 51 B.C. was a major point in the rise of Julius Caesar as a dictator for life.

The victory of the Gallic war resulted in the expansion of the Roman Republic and extended Rome's geographic boundaries to the Atlantic Ocean. This war also made Julius Caesar a very respected leader in Rome. The Gallic is one of the main reasons Julius Caesar became the sole ruler of the Roman Republic.
