  • Episode Description
  • The supporters of the ancient Roman Republic are alarmed by Julius Caesar's ambition to be the king or dictator of Rome, abolishing the age-old republican pattern of power-sharing by three consuls under the authority of the city's Senate. A soothsayer warns Caesar to beware the Ides of March. Caesar gets the monarchy he wants, but soon after he is killed by a group of leading Romans, including Cassius and his friend Brutus, on the Ides of March. Mark Antony makes the famous speech praising Caesar, and the action shifts to the battlefield on which Brutus and Cassius are defeated, with Caesar's crown as Emperor passing to his heir. Thus ended the Roman Republic.moreless
