Julius Caesar

JULIUS CAESAR was born on 13 July 100 BC. His family, the Julii, claimed descent from the ancient kings of Rome and from the goddess Venus. Caesar rapidly carved out an impressive political career, forging an alliance with Pompey and Crassus in 60 BC. "The Civil War" is Caesar's attempt at an explanation of the war that changed the Roman world.
