Recommended Posts

....on the Ides of March, Gaius Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times by members of the Roman Senate lead by Decimus Junius Brutus Albinus (who was stabbed in the hand by an errant dagger during the frenzy) and Gaius Cassius Longinus. After this day the events were set in motion that would lead to the creation of the Second Triumvirate, out of which would come the first Emperor of Rome, Augustus.

Another date of Roman significance - On this day (March 18) in 37 AD, the Roman Senate annulled the will of Tiberius Caesar and announced that Gaius Julius Germancus, better known as Caligula, Emperor of Rome.

Alot seems to have happened in Roman politics during the months of January through to June :shrug: Must have kept quiet in the winter.
