Flavus, already disliking Caesar, only disfavored him more because of Caesar’s attempts to ruin his political career and have his father disown him, which was an insult to him. My character believes that the assassination of Julius Caesar, while horrid, resulted in a better chance of the Republic rebuilding itself out of the ashes and back to its former
Marius had a few other accomplishments which also affected Caesar. He had many repeated consulships, which all laid down the foundation for Caesar’s desire to seek so much power from the State. He also shifted the army’s loyalty away from the Senate to the generals when he reformed the armies to include plebeians, which later made it possible for Caesar to successfully march on Rome and take absolute power. This was because Caesar was a supporter of the populares, so his soldiers were already extremely loyal to solely him, and not as much the State. These actions were all done mostly before Caesar had taken politics into his consideration, as he was still a young man.
Brutus, although not the main character of the play, he appears the most throughout the book, and helps further develop the story. The play starts out with Julius Caesar returning from war. In fear that he will become king and a tyrant, Brutus’ friend, Cassius decides to form a “conspiracy” to kill Caesar. They get Brutus to join them, and they successfully stab Caesar to death. Chaos erupts and Mark Antony, Caesar’s friend, vows revenge on those who killed Caesar.
Augustus Caesar, often referred to as the creator of the Roman Empire, was Rome’s first emperor, and arguably its greatest one. Although his relationship with each varied, he understood the importance of gaining the support of the military, the senate, and the people. He rose to power and maintained his power as a result of this ability. During his lengthy reign, he oversaw the transformation of the political and religious institutions, economy, administration, and army of the fragile Roman Republic into those of the Roman Empire (Mellor 6). In addition to a sense of humor, Augustus possessed intelligence, ruthlessness, and political savvy— traits which enabled him to craftily legitimize his autocratic rule under the forms of traditional republican law, and establish the legal, political, and cultural foundations for an empire that would persist for the next 1500 years.
Although the Roman public loved him, many higher Romans believed that he was becoming dangerous. These feelings ultimately led to the murder of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. when he was stabbed 35 times. This period of uncertainty lasted approximately
“Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste death but once.” Julius Caesar said this when he was talking about cowardness. Brutus had the choice to join the conspiracy or not. Here are a few reasons why. First, the people of Rome could see Brutus differently.
It set in motion a civil war and put an end to whatever democracy there had been” (Parenti 2). Caesar’s assassination harmed Rome and did not help their political situation at all. It confused and infuriated the working class because they had lost their beloved king to greedy senators without a real explanation. In Meller and McGee’s book they state that instead of supporting the conspiracy, the “assassination did help Caesar’s reputation” (Meller and McGee 78). The commoners loved Julius Caesar more than ever because they did not agree with the justifications that were given to them during Julius Caesar’s funeral.
The adopted son of the great Julius Caesar, Gaius Octavius born in 23rd of September 63 BC and reigned from 27 BC-14 AD. Although he never claimed the title of an emperor, he was in fact the first emperor of Rome. The process taken by Gaius Octavius to become Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus and the sequence of events that led to Octavian eliminating his potential threats to his succession was a significant historical figures. Event that was taken by Gaius Octavianus in order for his succession of becoming Augustus was through Eliminating political parties through war and through proscription, Avenging Caesars death(second triumvirate vs Cassius and Brutus) and the battle of Actium in which will be furtherly discussed.
“Peace, above all things, is to be desired, but blood must sometimes be spilled to obtain it on equable and lasting terms.” Words of the famous 7th president, Andrew Jackson. During his time in office he made decisions that affected the history of the world forever. Jackson was a man of respect and independence. He made a way for himself in his early years that led to him becoming a well-known American general.
He also never lost a single war for as long as he lived and he fought tons of wars. Also he had a major city in his empire called Alexandria. Alexander The Great is a villain because he left his original kingdom forever after only ruling for 2 years,conquered innocent lands and people,and wasn’t good at ruling his own land.
The empire of Rome had a slow fall due to its poor leaders, the republic of Rome had a very quick death due to the corruption of its leaders, the empire had one man to control all and it would usually be overwhelming and the republic had a great many “leaders” all whom wanted to be the leader-iest leader of all the other leaders. Corruption and power are one and the same, it takes a great person, a legend almost to be able to maintain absolute power without absolute corruption. Alexander the great was a great leader because he had wars to fight and people to kill he had a singular goal. Ramases II was a great leader since he had a very poor Egypt to return to its former status. These goals help a leader to remain calm and away from their inner thoughts, but when your inner thoughts are screaming old men and power hungry, conceited “lad” it would not take long before someone gets mad enough to silence the rest of these voices.
