Candidates for offices came to Caesar for money, something that again, Caesar could grant based on the spoils of his conquests. In return, these candidates did everything they could do to advance Caesar's power. The most influential and powerful men visited Caesar and decided that Caesar should receive more money, and most importantly, that Caesar's power should be renewed for an additional five years (Plutarch, 1915). Caesar's advertisement of his defeat of Gaul was paying off handsomely in money and extended leadership. This was helpful to Caesar because it allowed him to further influence men that would later help him back in Rome.
Octavian was a young Roman who grew up in Greece, and was later adopted by his grand uncle Julius Caesar. Octavian created the largest Empire of his time. Every thing he did to make the empire changed the Roman world. Later the Senate, the law makers of Rome, titled him Augustus, or “the imposing one”.

Caesar was beginning to show signs that he saw himself above roman jurisdiction which was contradicting Republic values. The senate also did not like the fact that Julius Caesar was extremely disrespectful towards them on multiple accounts which showed his arrogance. Suetonius states, “Two tribunes of the people ordered the fillet to be removed at once from his statue and the offender imprisoned. But Caesar reprimanded and summarily degraded them both.” The reason why Julius Caesar was eventually assassinated was because he was too obvious about his motives. Caesar had no problem acting like a tyrant in front of the senate even though they were the ones that gave him his titles and honors.
Flavius Honorius Augustus was born in the 9th of September 384 to Theodosius I and Aelia Flaccilla. His father Theodosius I named him Augustus at a young age after the death of his father Honorius and Arcadius divided the Roman Empire. Honorius was the West Roman Emperor from 393 to 423. Flavius Honorius held the consulate at the age of 2 and was made co ruler on the 23rd of January 393 after the death of the roman emperor Valentinian II. Honorius died at the age of 38 in 15 August 423 in Ravenna, Italy.
Hannibal vowed to be an enemy of Rome and set out to be their life-long enemy. He was described as possessing the same fire and bright look in his eyes as his father. He was described as having the same trick of countenance and features; the same spirit more skillful to meet opposition, to obey, or to command. The older soldiers believe they saw Hannibal as his father in his youth. In the end, when Rome wanted to arrest him, Hannibal fled and took his own life rather than conform to the commands of Rome.
Having to choose between his loyalty to Rome and his loyalty to his close friend, Brutus shows what is more important to him by finally killing Caesar. In Act I, Brutus tells Cassius, “What means this shouting? I do fear the people/Choose Caesar for their king” (Shakespeare I.ii.85-86). Brutus fears that Caesar will be crowned king, which contradicts the values of the Roman Republic. And after some persuading from the conspirators and Cassius, Brutus finally joins in on the act to kill Caesar before he can do any damage to Rome.
After this defeat, they both committed suicide. In 27 BC the Roman Senate gave Octavian the title of Augustus. So he now was Emperor of Rome. He was a great leader of Rome because he built many buildings, roads, and bridges in Rome, he brought peace to the land, and strengthened the army which conquered the Mediterranean Sea. Pax Romana, “Peace of Rome”, was a time where Rome sustained internal peace for about 200 years.

He had seven kids, four girls and three boys. Fighting in the Revolutionary War: Thomas Jefferson was a founding father of America, but of course there was a Battle before that. Jefferson wrote pieces of literature like the "Summary View of the Rights of British America," and the Declaration of Independence.
But not all in Rome loved Caesar. Some loved him, some hated him, but such is the life of a prominent leader. Caesar was a very progressive leader, as he worked to break down social boundaries within the vast empire, all the while expanding Roman territory. He demonstrated great prowess and strategy in battle, as well as skilled in rhetoric and oration and governing. He also introduced Rome’s calendar, the namesake Julian calendar.
