Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus was a homicidal maniac who because of his family name became emperor of the ancient civilization of Rome.1 Gaius is better known as Caligula from when he was a child traveling with Germanicus on war campaigns in the north. History records him in the first half of his reign as as respectable emperor who the people loved, but after falling severely sick the second half records him as a unintelligent psycho who had blood lust.2 Caligula’s qualities applied to present day would surely be interesting.

Another tragic flaw of his is that he had a lust for power, and because of this Brutus meets his death at the end of this play.
Julius Caesar was excepted at the completion of his education to assume a modest office on the lower end of the long ladder of the Roman political career. however, Julius Caesar was not like other Romans.
