1. Based on the text, it can be reasonably be inferred that Julius Caesar was assassinated for what reason? Include
at least one piece of evidence in your response.
The middle years of the first century BC were marked by violence in the city, and fighting between gangs supporting rival
politicians and political programmes.
The two protagonists were Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus ('Pompey the Great', as he was called, after Alexander the Great)
and Julius Caesar. Originally allies, they became bitter enemies. Both had conquered vast tracts of territory: Pompey in
what is now Turkey, Caesar in France.
Caesar promoted radical policies in the spirit of Tiberius Gracchus; Pompey had the support of the traditionalists.
Historians in both the ancient and modern world have devoted enormous energy to tracking the precise stages by which
these two men came head-to-head in civil war. For much of this period we can actually follow the daily course of events
thanks to the surviving letters of a contemporary politician, Marcus Tullius Cicero.
But the fact is that, given the power each had accrued and their entrenched opposition, war between them was almost
inevitable. It broke out in 49 BC. By the end of 48 BC, Pompey was dead (beheaded as he tried to land in Egypt) and
Caesar was left - to all intents and purposes - as the first emperor of Rome.
But not in name. Using the old title of 'dictator', he notoriously received the kind of honours that were usually reserved
for the gods. He also embarked on another program of reform including such radical measures as the cancellation of
debts and the settlement of landless veteran soldiers.
He did not, however, have long to effect change (perhaps his most lasting innovation was his reform of the calendar and
the introduction of the system of 'leap years' that we still use today). For in 44 BC he too was murdered by a posse of
senators, in the name of 'liberty'.
Not much 'liberty' was to follow. Instead there was another decade of civil war as Caesar's supporters first of all battled it
out with his assassins, and when they had been finished off, fought among themselves.
There was no other major player left when in 31 BC Octavian (Caesar's nephew and adopted son) defeated Antony at a
naval battle near Actium in northern Greece.
