Born in 100 BC from an ancient Gens, he was the undisputed protagonist of the end of the Republic. Shrewd calculator (in 60 BC he formed the first triumvirate, thus becoming proconsul of Gaul and Illyria) and a great conductor, during the political crisis in Rome he fought against Pompey seeking absolute power, stirring up a civil war that was eventually won by Caesar himself. When coming back from his campaign against Juba, the king of Numidia, he celebrated a majestic triumph, after which he became dictator for life. He was also granted the title of Emperor and the tribunitial power, as well as all the other charges and powers typical of a monarch. He was assassinated in 44 BC by a group of republican conspirators. Among the reforms adopted by Caesar it must be remembered the new calendar based on the solar system (instead of the moon system) He also wrote the De Bello Gallico and the De Bello Civili.
