Julius Caesar is one of the famous personalities in world history It was Caesar who ended the Roman republic and paved the way for the later Roman emperors Although there is a lot written about him there was always debate if he was a hero or a villain But for many people including myself Caesar is an interesting person I will give the facts of his remarkable life and leave you to decide if he was a hero or tyrant When Caesar was a young boy he had to escape the wrath of the dictator Sulla This man had taken all power to defend the Republic and tried to cleanse the state from its enemies Caesar was eventually pardoned but Sulla did have an astonishing foresight He predicted that the stubborn boy would become dangerous Caesar was the last descendant of the ancient clan of the Julii but although they were patricians and intermarried with other senatorial families they were totally poor He was educated in rhetoric philosophy and law like other patricians But after his near brush with death the eighteen-year old youth decided to enter the army This was the beginning of an astonishing military career He became second in command of the province Asia In two years he established himself by his bravery strength skill and courage in battle After these years he went back to Rome He served as officer in Crassuss army against Spartacus and climbed steadily up in the government by serving as official in the provinces He remarried a wealthy wife and allied with Crassus then the richest man in Rome Their contestant was Pompeius Magnus Caesar coveted and gained the lifetime function of Pontifex maximus high priest of the people of Rome In 61BC he received a military post as governor of Spain He ruthlessly suppressed all resistance and returned as war hero in Rome Meier 156-157 The consulate was his next goal
