Julius Caesar was a politician. When he was appointed to the 47th B.C., for ten year, he quickly became the most powerful and intelligent dictator in Rome’s history. He was re-elected for life on February 14th, 44th B.C. Gaius Julius Caesar was his full-name and he was born on July 12th, 100 B.C. in Rome, Italy. His parents were Aurelia and Gaius Caesar. He was also well-known as the descendant of Trojan Prince Aeneas. His family was poor. In order to satisfy his hunger for power, he chose to marry into an elite family. Julius Caesar was an exceptional and brilliant-minded man. Even as a young man, Julius Caesar realized that money and corruption were the keys to a Roman republic. His huge bribery is one reason he rose into power. This means that he bought his political power from Rome and many senators disapproved of him. Julius Caesar was known for his ability to manipulate the political system. He was highly educated, intelligent, and a great public speaker. Many called him a “military wizard”. He was a “military intelligence” or a great general in military, which helped him gain popularity, support, as well as power among the Roman Republic’s people. Julius Caesar made it clear that he would rise to power using bribery and military strength. He is therefore known as the greatest man in history. He was the first to win in nearly every war he fought and led. These victories allowed him to expand many of Rome’s geological boundaries. The Capture of Gaul was one of his many battles. The Battle of Alesia is another. His second, and most important achievement was the transformation of a Roman Republic into an Empire. Although the Empire was established after the civil wars had ended (14 years since his assassination), it was his work that allowed the Roman Republic to become the Roman Empire. Julius Caesar’s great-nephew Augustus was elected Rome’s first ruler. Julius Caesar was a man of many accomplishments. His life was full of determination. He also serves as a role-model to many others living today. Julius Caesar had a positive impact on many people, especially future leaders. However, many of his subjects didn’t like him. His unquenchable thirst to power, his well-thought-out decisions, and his frequent use of bribery were the reasons. On March 15, 1944, he was assassinated by about 60 noblemen, some of them senators from Rome. Marcus Junius Brutus (d.42BC) and Gaius Cassius Longinus (19.2 BC) arranged this assassination plot. Julius Caesar’s final words were “‘kai su, teknon?” which is “You too? My child?” His close friend, Brutus, also stabbed his hand. Although his subjects were loyal to him, this does not prove that they had a positive impression on him. This was the reason Julius Caesar, the most powerful man in Rome, died. Julius Caesar seemed to have been more of an administrator than an army General during his lifetime. People today know Julius Caesar as the most powerful dictator of the Roman Republic and its leader. While he was a “military general” and a “military genius”, his strengths and talents lay in the leadership, guiding, or helping Rome to become an extremely powerful republic. His lifetime was a time of order and stability in Rome. Other examples of his outstanding administration include the way he granted citizenship and added different aristocrats to his Senate. Julius Caesar is also well-known for his clever and meticulously planned decisions as an administrator. He was always aware of both the risks and benefits of his decisions. Julius Caesar was therefore a better administrator than an army general.
