Julius Caesar

a.k.a. Gaius Julius Caesar

Author Code: CJUC

Born: Jul. 12, 100BC - Rome, Italy

Died: Mar. 15, 44BC - Rome, Italy

Caesar became the head of his family on the death of his father in 85BC. He entered the army and served in Asia and Cilicia and was awarded the Civic Crown for his part in the siege of Mytilene. He returned to Rome in 78BC and took up legal advocacy and became famous as an orator. He went to Rhodes in 75BC to study rhetoric under Apollonius Molon, but was intercepted by pirates and held for ransom. When he was released, he raised a fleet and pursued his captors, finally capturing and imprisoning them at Pergamon. He later had them crucified. He returned to Rome after a short military campaign in Asia and was appointed tribune. In 69BC, he was elected quaestor and spent some time in Spain before returning to Rome where he married Pompeia, a granddaughter of Sulla. In 63BC, he served as a judge in the trial of Rabirius and was elected Pontifex Maximus, the chief priest of Rome. In 59BC he was elected consul and formed the First Triumvirate with Pompey and Crassus. He then married Calpurnia and was appointed to govern Cisalpine Gaul and Illyricum. Over the next three years, Caesar succeeded in subduing various enemies in Gaul and established a presence in Britain. By 51BC, he had effectively conquered all of Gaul. The death of Crassus in 53BC had left Pompey in charge in Rome as the sole consul and in 50BC he ordered Caesar to return to Rome and disband his army. In January of 49BC, Caesar crossed the Rubicon with a legion and civil war ensued. The following year, Pompey was defeated and fled to Alexandria where he was killed on the order of King Ptolemy. Caesar became involved in the Alexandrine civil war between Ptolemy and his sister Cleopatra. Siding with Cleopatra, he defeated Ptolemy in 47BC and installed Cleopatra as queen. It is said that they had a son, Caesarion. He then campaigned in the Middle East, Africa and Spain, gaining significant victories before returning to Rome in 45BC to become Dictator of Rome. Dissatisfaction in the Senate eventually led to his assassination in 44BC. Caesar's extant writings include The Commentaries on the Gallic War and The Commentaries on the Civil War. Works that have been attributed to Caesar, but are thought to have been written by other commentators include The Alexandrine War, On the African War and On the Hispanic War.
