Been a while since I wrote one of these! ABOUT TIME! So lets get ancient here and check out this sexy Roman dictator. He has quite a beautifully sculpted face, and I don’t just mean that literally.
Julius Caesar was born in Rome in 100 BC. He was incredibly political savvy. In 61-60 BC, he served as governor of the Roman province of Spain, then when he returned to Rome his buddies helped him get elected as consul for 59 BC. The following year he was appointed governor of Roman Gaul, gathered up modern France and Belgium and added it to his Roman empire collection.
He hung out in Britain for a while, and when he came back to Italy there was all a big civil war going down, but he rocked that shit. Pompey, the republican leader, fled to Egypt where he was assassinated. Caesar followed him, and it was there that he fell in love with the sexy Egyptian queen, Cleopatra. Oh my, Julius. Getting scandalous.
Anyway, Caesar was now master of Rome and made himself dictator for life in 44 BC. He used his power to carry out much-needed reform, and his ambition allowed him to do be quite successful in doing so. His popularity really alienated and quite frankly pissed off the republican senators, so group of these, led by Cassius and Brutus, assassinated Caesar on the Ides (15) of March 44 BC. This event sparked the final round of civil wars that ended the Republic and brought about the elevation of Caesar’s great nephew and designated heir, Octavian, as Augustus, the first emperor.
