Antony was an intelligent man who devoted his life to be reliant on Caesar. He wanted Caesar to get the crown so when his plan of assassinating him worked; he would take over and become the king. Caesar, before he was killed, refused to become king because he said it was the best interest of Rome. When Antony spoke at Caesars’ funeral, he wrote a fake will so that the town people would be mad at Caesar. In the fake will, Antony wrote that Caesar left nothing to the town people, but in the real will, which Antony had with him, it stated that everyone in Rome should get some items of his, but Antony wanted it all to himself.
