The Historical Julius Caesar Early Rome Rome was established in 753 B.C. A democratic republic was then established which lasted until the death of Julius Caesar.

The Romans were proud of their democratic system and were repulsed by the thought of being ruled by an emperor. Gaius Julius Caesar Born: 12th or 13th July, 100 BC. Died: 15th March, 44 BC.

A lawyer, politician, and military leader. Before the people wanted to crown him emperor, Julius Caesar conquered and talked his way to gain power. He was was part of a Triumvirate with general Pompey and wealthy colonel Crassus. Captured by pirates twice!

Pompey once had more favor with the people than Caesar, but after a civil war, Pompey was dead and Julius was in charge and loved by all (or most..). The Scene Pretty historically accurate, Shakespeares play takes

place in Ancient Rome, where Julius Caesar has just returned in triumph from war. The crowd greatly respects Caesar for all the good he has done and hails him as their new leader,

but there are some Roman officials who fear he will become too powerful of a ruler, more like an emperor, and they will lose the liberties they have enjoyed as citizens of a free state. A small group of men conspire to assassinate Caesar, believing they are acting to

preserve the freedoms of the Roman Republic. Shakespeare: His Life and Times Early Life Born 1564

In Shakespeares Time Shakespeare created at least 38 plays, made up of tragedies, histories, comedies, and tragicomedies. A show lasted about 2 hours, usually in open air theatres during the afternoon. There was no scenery, but elaborate props and

costumes to give reality. Devices such as trap doors and scaffolds were used to make gods, witches, etc. disappear. The Stage In Shakespeares Time (continued) There were no actresses. All parts were played by

men or boys. In front of stage was a big open area where the "penny-public" stood to watch as they could not afford seats. The wealthy had seats on upper levels. Tragedy and the Tragic Hero Shakespeares tragedies are often called

his greatest plays. Every tragedy contains a tragic hero Tragic hero: a main character who goes through a series of events that lead to his/her downfall Qualities of a Tragic Hero
