The Assassination of Julius Caesar on the Ides of March (44 BC): The Grandest Conspiratorial Plot - In 44 BC, one of history’s most enduring figures fell victim to arguably the most famous conspiracy in recorded history. The assassination of Julius Caesar on the floor of the Roman Senate took place on the 15th of March, or the Ides of March, 44 BC.

Prior to the Roman dictator being slain, the Ides of March was a day that had wide religious, lunar and other significance in the Roman calendar. Following the events of 44 BC however, the day took on even greater significance. “Beware the Ides of March” as William Shakespeare would write centuries later.

The Motives

The plot that led to the assassination of Caesar involved more than 60 Senators and influential figures in ancient Rome. Why did these powerful people conspire in such a way? The motives of the conspirators were varied, yet fuelled by self-interest as much as by any other noble motivation in many instances.

Caesar’s unrivalled power, lifestyle, and popularity amongst the people were key reasons. In the years prior to Caesar’s assassination, his life reads like a mixture of an epic film and a scandalous soap. After conquering vast lands in Gaul and other places in the name of Rome (and Caesar of course), the Roman general triumphed in a civil war, became dictator for life, and took an Egyptian queen as his mistress – none other than Cleopatra, who was living in Caesar’s villa near Rome in 44 BC. Furthermore, Cleopatra claimed her son was Caesar’s illegitimate child. Needless to say, Caesar’s epic life created many enemies, particularly amongst traditional factions back in Rome.

The 3 Conspirators

Among the various conspirators, three men stand out as notable players. Two are well known, popularized by the likes of Shakespeare: namely, Brutus and Cassius. Yet there is another key conspirator, someone who knew Caesar much better, making the betrayal much greater. His name was Decimus.

From a noble Roman family whose name had lost some shine, Decimus has been a long-term ally of Caesar. Yet why did he turn against him? One reason for Decimus’ betrayal was Caesar’s refusal to honour him with a victory parade. Furthermore, Caesar was looking at others to be his successor.

In the winter of 44 BC, Cassius, a nobleman and trained soldier, began working on the plot to kill Caesar. He recruited Brutus and Decimus shortly after. Decimus had Caesar’s trust, and even dined next to the dictator the night before his death. Furthermore, on the morning of the 15th, Caesar decided not to attend the Senate meeting that noon, perhaps due to whispers of a conspiracy. It was Decimus who visited Caesar at his home and convinced him to attend the fatal meeting.

During a Senate meeting on the Ides of March, Caesar was assassinated. Sitting on a podium in the Roman Senate just after noon, Caesar found himself surrounded on all sides. The Roman dictator was stabbed to death 23 times in a bloody affair, with as many as 40 Senators participating. In the immediate aftermath, Decimus provided security for the conspirators. His group of gladiators also served as a private security force, and they escorted the assassins from the Senate floor to safety, protecting them in the chaotic days that followed.

Julius Caesar’s Writings on the Druids, the Ancient Celtic Priesthood Who Practiced Human Sacrifice…

In Julius Caesar’s book, The Conquest of Gaul, there is a relatively detailed description of the mysterious Druids, who are described by Caesar as a sort of Celtic priesthood. Caesar’s book focuses on the Roman campaign in Gaul (which loosely corresponds to modern-day France and other neighbouring countries) and then later into Britain. The Gallic wars lasted from around 58 BC to 50 BC.

Obviously, Caesar is a biased source, as the Druids had power amongst tribes that Caesar was trying to conquer; namely, the Celts in Gaul and Britain. We also know that Caesar’s book was written as a piece of propaganda for a Roman audience. Caesar was well aware that his book, which is strangely written in the third person, would be read back in Rome. This explains why Caesar constantly portrays Caesar as a figure who solves all problems that arise, whether that be in his own ranks, or amongst the barbarian hordes, as Rome saw them.

Despite these reservations, Caesar’s description of these enigmatic people is still fascinating. Caesar starts by describing the organization of the Gauls, writing that the Druids and the Knights are the two privileged classes. “The Druids officiate at the worship of the gods, regulate public and private sacrifices, and give rulings on all religious questions,” according to Caesar (Caesar 1982: 140).

The Druids also played a legal role, as they acted “as judges,” and this attracted young men to them for guidance (Caesar 1982: 140). Each year, the Druids held a large meeting in the country of Carnutes, the centre of Gaul, where disputes were settled. Interestingly, Caesar wrote that the Druid tradition was imported to Gaul from Britain, which, at the time of writing in the first century BC, was still the place to study Druidism.

The Druids enjoyed many advantages, including being “exempt from military service” and not paying takes like other citizens did (Caesar 1982: 140). Furthermore, in line with Celtic traditions, the Druids memorized a lot of information and verses, and did not write a lot down, but apparently, they used the Greek alphabet when they did have to write.
Caesar’s commentaries tell us that the Druids engaged in long discussions about the universe, the nature of the gods, and the physical makeup of the world. As Caesar wrote, they believed that the “soul does not perish, but after death passes from one body to another; they think that this is the best incentive for bravery, because it teaches men to disregard the terrors of death” (Caesar 1982: 141).

Caesar also argues that the Gauls were extremely superstitious and that the Druids practiced human sacrifice. According to Caesar:

“As a nation the Gauls are extremely superstitious; and so, persons suffering from serious diseases, as well as those who are exposed to the perils of battle, offer, or vow to offer, human sacrifices, for the performance of which they employ Druids. They believe that the only way of saving a man’s life is to propitiate the god’s wrath by rendering another life in its place, and they have regular state sacrifices of the same kind.

Some tribes have colossal images made of wickerwork, the limbs of which they fill with living men; they are then set on fire, and the victims burnt to death. They think that the gods prefer the execution of men taken in the act of theft or brigandage, or guilty of some offence; but when they run short of criminals, they don’t hesitate to make up with innocent men” (Caesar 1982: 141).

Episode 2: Julius Caesar is probably the most famous Roman of them all – a maverick, a soldier of genius, charming, power-crazed, opportunistic and brilliant. What Caesar achieved, overthrowing a 500-year-old Republic and seizing power, is perhaps the single greatest turning point in the history of Rome.

Personal notes:
I love the fact that the majority of this episode is concentrated on the arm conflict between Caesar and Pompey. Showing also the battle of Dyrrhachium where Caesar was defeated, which is often ignored.

However, my eyes rolled back in my head @20:15, when I heard Caesar mocking Cato, because he "brushes his teeth in his own urine." I seriously doubt that Julius Caesar would have ever said that, for the simple reason that the ancient Romans did indeed use their urine to clean their teeth. Therefore, Caesar included, I should think. The reason for that is very simple. The Romans were obsessed with the hygiene and loved white teeth also, but they didn’t have toothpastes or cleaning detergents. Urine contains ammonia, and ammonia is one of the best naturally occurring cleaning agents. In fact, it is good enough to be a major component of a number of cleaning agents that we use today.

Ammonia is also a natural whitener, which means they were improving the whiteness of their teeth and it also helped to prevent them from getting cavities. The fact that urine contains such a strong cleaning agent meant that the ancient Romans could use it for a wide variety of purposes, such as for cleaning their clothes too. Although, not always and not only, water and soda was used too. They had a dedicated Laundromat, called "Fullonica", which was a very profitable commercial activity. So much so, that the Emperor Vespasian even imposed taxes on the urine.

There is some interesting stuff on the subject, in this blog, if you're curious about it. http://www.ancientpages.com/2017/12/10/ancient-romans-loved-white-teeth-means-acceptable-get-even-portuguese-urine/
