Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar is perhaps one of the most famous men in history. He was a Roman general and statesman. However, what you may know about him might not be the whole truth. Poeple generally see Caesar as the man from Shakespeare's play and not the man from real history. Nonetheless, Caesar was loved by the people of Rome and even though he wasn't an Emperor, his name would be used to mean Emperor for centuries to come. Actually, even the Russian word Czar is based on the Latin Caesar. Read some great Julius Caesar quotes below.
