Term 1 Task
This term, our task was to present a presentation on a historical figure. We now present to you , our project which is about the very dominant figure, Julius Caesar.
Why was he an important figure?
Caesar was an important figure because he was the first dictator of Rome who changed the face of the Roman Empire. His powerful mind has put an influence on our world today.
Now let's look at his life...
100 - 44 = 56 years old
when he died !
Julius Caesar and His Early Life:
Caesar grew up in a decent household; his family was aristocratic so they could trace their bloodlines since the development of Ancient Rome.
Caesar first began his education with a private tutor named Marcus Antonious Anipho at the age of 6. In that period of time, he'd been taught how to read and write. Other studies such as the 'Roman Law' and 'How to Speak in public' were taken into serious consideration.
In Ancient Roman traditions, men were in charge in the family therefore when Caesar's father passed away, Caesar was the head of the family. The family was in desperate for a woman, so Julius Caesar quickly married Cornelia, one of the most dominant political prospects in Ancient Rome.
Fought in several wars by the time he was 31
Reorganized the Roman army
Became a dictator of the Roman Empire
Fixed the Lunar calendar so in 4 years it's a leap year
Caesar is also said to have produced "Acta Diurna", the first newspaper that was posted on a forum to allow the public to know about the actions and functioning of the Assembly and the Senate
Caesar became involved in Roman politics
Caesar was assassinated on the 15th of March. He was ambushed by a large number of people who stabbed him to death. He was stabbed 23 times. The leaders of the plot were Brutus and Cassius.
A faction of senators assassinated him because they thought he was a dangerous and ambitious man who wanted to put an end to the Roman Republic.
So that is how Julius Caesar`s enticing and dominant life ended.
Julius Caesar and Pompey
Julius Caesar and His Rise to Power
Julius Caesar did not immediately come to power as he was in a tough dilemma between two factions in Roman politics, the then dictator, Sulla, were enemies with Caesar's uncles, but Caesar took the road with his uncle to avoid Sulla and her allies.
After long battles Sulla was painfully slayed and Caesar came back to Rome as a military hero after all his hard-fought years in the military.
He was a very amiable and well-loved speaker. Julius Caesar gained a following of very powerful men. Pompey then became envious and desperate, there, he and Julius Caesar became fierce rivals.
It was the battle of aristocrats and people. It then became a civil war.
Caesar and Rome took control of the war and Caesar prevailed and became a powerful dictator of Rome.
After the civil war, Julius Caesar was arguably the most powerful and dominant person in the world. He was so well loved that the Senate made him dictator for life and he ruled like a king.
He then went on to advance Rome; there Rome became one of the most powerful empires in the world.
Here is our Animoto:
Julius Caesar fought in several battles in which he was victorious in all of them except where he was defeated during the Battle of Gergovia.
Caesar had a stunning 25,000 soliders in his army who stood for Caesar under any situation.
