Julius Caesar left an everlasting impact on the world during his short time on earth. Julius Caesar started his reign in Spain when he became governor in 61 BCE, then only one year later he created the first triumvirate with his allies Crassus, and Pompey. As Julius Caesar continued his road to success, he became consul in 59 BCE. After becoming Consul for one year he spread his power to Gaul and became governor there in 58 BCE serving two four year terms. For the eight years Caesar expanded his power by winning every single battle he fought. Then in 49 BCE Julius Caesar led his troops across the Rubicon River to regain control over Rome. One year later in 48 BCE Julius Caesar served as consul again for four years until in 44 BCE Julius
Julius Caesar achieved such a great amount of influence after he vanquished Gaul and brought back much riches, most of the Romans loved and cherished him, yet some didn 't. He made more employments and numerous changes that helped poor ranchers, merchants, artisans. On the other hand he was the most recent in a long line of officers and tribunes who had misused their authority and harmed the republican foundations which were vital to the Roman government. He made himself out to be a king, something discredited by most romans since the fifth century BC when it turned into a full republic kept running by the senate rather than rulers. "Friends" of Caesar and other people 's issues with him was that they were jealous of him, their own
This quote talks about Cassius planning on throwing notes at Brutus’ window saying the citizens want him as their leader. Right when Brutus reads the notes he makes up his mind and joins the conspiracy. This shows how gullible he is by the timing, he didn't take any time to really think about the situation he's facing. It should be a red flag if he randomly gets three notes from “citizens” complaining about Caesar right after Cassius talks to him about joining the conspiracy. As time goes on Cassius also puts different ideas in Brutus’ head, for example “The fault, dear Brutus is not in our stars but in ourselves, that we are underlings.” This quote is Cassius talking to Brutus about how they are like Caesar's slave. Brutus shows his gullibility because they are both really powerful senators, they aren't like Caesar's slave. But Cassius is trying to get Brutus in the mindset that they are and he believes him. Right after Caesar’s death Brutus gave a speech to the people about what he did was good not a bad thing. Right after he says this he leaves so Antony can speak to the people. Antony basically turns the people against Brutus during this time. Brutus shows his gullibility by thinking that Antony wouldn't say anything bad about him or

One chieftain named Vercingetorix did try to unite the tribes, but it was too little too late and Caesar won. It took Caesar about 9 years to conquer all of Gaul. After he was done with that, he went to invade Germany because he had been obstructed by the bandits of Germany during his Gaul campaign. A bloody and violent war took place and Caesar was triumphant yet
Although the influence that the power of free will possesses can immensely affect the fate of an individual, fate can also be predestined. Throughout the play, characters demonstrate their own views on the effect of free will through their actions, thoughts, and words. In an attempt to change the fate of the Roman Empire, the conspiracy chooses to utilize their free will by murdering the widely beloved leader of Rome. However, due to the outcome of the play, it can be questioned if their costly actions were all in vain. Incidents that are decided by free will and others that are already underway are prominent within The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, and greatly affect the denouement of the play.

After the stabbing, Cassius says “Some to the common pulpits, and cry out Liberty, freedom, and enfranchisement! '’ (III,I, 88-89). Essentially Cassius is saying they should go out and say to the public that they have given them freedom!

In the Shakespearean play, Julius Caesar, a group of conspirators are against Caesar's rise in power and popularity, so they assassinate him to prevent Cesar from ascending greatly in power and becoming a tyrant. Even though the conspirators had the “good of Rome” in their intentions, Caesar's murder was not justified.
