To claim that Julius Caesar is one of the greatest men to have ever lived may be pushing things a bit too far, but throughout the course of this book, we will certainly show how Caesar was indeed one of, if not the, greatest Romans.
Throughout the book, we will explore his early life and show how that shaped his character and then, eventually, his entire career. We will explore the highs and severe lows of his life from being forced into the army to effectively save his life, to being captured by pirates, conquests, revolts, civil war, supreme power, and of course his brutal assassination.
This book does not go on hearsay, but instead it focuses on details from sources of the time. It charts his rise to power, how brutal he could be at times with people that crossed him or stood up against him. It looks at the very reasons that could have ultimately led to his assassination. Was it because he was getting too much power? Was it due to him making constitutional reforms that led to the rich getting poorer? Was it for the greater good of the Empire or was it all about personal gain?
‘Julius Caesar, Ruler of Rome: The Life And Times of Rome’s Most Feared Caesar’ will ultimately tell you the truth of what happened during his life and you will begin to understand why he does indeed deserve the title of Rome’s most feared Caesar.
