Beware The Ides Of March
If you must break the law, do it to seize power; in all other cases, observe it.
Early in the year of 44 BC, Julius Caesar was declared dictator perpetuo (dictator in perpetuity) of the Roman Republic. This alarmed many members of the Roman Senate, who worried that Caesar—in his quest for supreme power—would undermine their democratic body to establish an oppressive monarchy. Led by Gaius Cassius Longinus, Decimus Junius Brutus, and Marcus Junius Brutus, a group of concerned Senators conspired to preempt Caesar’s reign of tyranny.
On 15 March 44 BC, as Julius Caesar passed the Theater Of Pompey, he was approached by multiple members of the Senate, who stabbed him 23 times. And thus ended Caesar’s rule over Rome.
