Also, Caligula’s baffling Uncle Claudius became Emperor by the Praetorian Guard. Personally, Caligula was a tragedy waiting to happen. The people of Rome may have known that his reign would be the forefront of destruction to the Roman Empire, but a blind hope of arrogance clouded their judgment as Caligula’s terror destroyed the lives of those around him. However, Caligula’s life was built for luxury, military warfare, and egomania. Most Emperors would have the decency to respect his people, protect their empire, and keep peace among other countries.
Cassius knew and warned Brutus yet Brutus was being stubborn for better words and did not listen. Cassius was suicidal and didn’t exactly speak his opinion when it was needed or could of been heard. Cassius also killed one of his own men during war who was a coward! That shows major disloyalty with Cassius knowing that they shouldn’t of gone to Philippi in the first place. Julius Caesar would of made a great leader for Rome and showed loyalty and gave to his country in his will .
Caesar was officially made dictator in 47 B.C. this position was usually temporary but he was later on made dictator for life in 44 B.C. Rome had its senate but the real power was with Caesar . Caesar did not want to become the king but the fear of the republicans led the senate to conspire against Caesar and a group of senators ended up killing him believing that the old republican system would return. In conclusion Julius Caesar’s military power affected Rome either positively or negatively from 60 B.C.
The transition from republic to empire was due to the colossal feats of both Julius Caesar and Octavian also known as Caesar Augustus. Julius Caesar was a pragmatic military commander and politician that eventually rose up and became the first emperor of Rome. His accomplishments for Rome were vast due to his military expertise but eventually lead to his betrayal and demise. Octavian lived a similar but different life than Julius Caesar. While Julius Caesar’s life ended in tragedy, Octavian was able to live out his life and be an emperor.
People who kill other people for really no reason are villains. Alexander killed many people just because they did something little to his civilization. According to TCI “Philip wanted to attack Persia next, but, in 336 B.C.E., he was murdered. His son, Alexander, was the new Macedonian king.” (TCI the last section). A website states that Alexander murdered his dad (Cite in Bibliography).
Abominable action are executed by Scar, he murdered his own brother and king to seize his position as king; he also tried to murder his nephew Simba, the heir to the throne but failed and told him to run away. As a result, he became the king ruling the kingdom in with a lack of consciousness and ruthlessly s. Scar believed he was entitled to perform as he pleased; his behaviour was no longer the surviving behaviour to seize the position of king. There was a food and water shortage but he responded he would rather prefer death to come along to all of them in order to stay as king, in power of the whole kingdom. His main focus in life was being king and is above every other animal in the hierarchy and he behaved as he was not even concerned about his death but only his legitimate
Caesar’s last words speak, “Et tu, Bruté?—Then fall, Caesar) Shakespeare (III.i.85). Seeing the person betrayal from Brutus stabbing him last, Caesar is distressed by the fact that even one of his closest friends tried to kill him. Although Brutus loves Caesar and is a close friend of his, he decides that Rome is more important and that Caesar is unsuitable to be a king. If Brutus cared about his personal loyalty more, he would have told Caesar that the conspirators were trying to kill him or at least he would not have killed him. However, that is not the case, and it is obvious that Brutus’s heart and concerns go to his beloved city, Rome.
Some people argue that Julius Caesar was the greatest military general and politician of all time; however, I disagree. In my opinion, Caesar was a forceful dictator who only cared about his own wealth and power, punished innocent citizens, and was greedy for supporters. Julius Caesar just wanted himself to be satisfied, even if it was at the expense of the Roman republic. He also punished all of the innocent citizens that just wanted to sustain the old laws and traditions of the Roman republic. Another reason he is not an astonishing leader is that he increased the number of senators so that more people would support him.
He explains to the people of Rome how Caesar couldn’t have been an ambitious man; he has turned down a crown three times. Brutus and Antony use persuasion throughout the play to explain further on why Brutus helps kill Caesar and how Antony gets the people of Rome to turn against Brutus. First, Brutus tells the people of Rome that he had only killed Caesar so they could finally all be free from his power. For example, when Brutus says,”not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved/ Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living, and/ die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all/ freemen?”(3.2.23-26).
The final plan for Caesar’s murder was to kill him in Senate while he was alone, and the conspirators could conceal their daggers under their togas(“The Assassination of Julius Caesar, 44 BC”). Many of the senators were involved in the stabbing and death of Caesar, but the two main conspirators were Cassius Longinus and Marcus Brutus. On March 15, 44 BC, Caesar, despite a warning note, strayed from his security and was stabbed repeatedly( "The Ides of March: Julius Caesar Is Murdered."). Caesar died in front of Pompey’s status, an ironic fall, with thirty-five stab wounds("The Assassination of Julius Caesar, 44 BC."). Caesar died in front of the figure that motivated his own
