100 BC - 44 BC
One of the most influential men ever to have lived, Julius Caesar was a politician and general of the Roman Republic. He played a critical role in transforming the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. As governor of Roman Gaul, Caesar added the whole of modern France and Belgium to the Roman Empire, saving Rome from the possibility of Gallic invasions. Following two expeditions to Britain, Caesar returned to Italy, disregarding the authority of the senate and famously crossing the Rubicon River without disbanding his army. In the civil war which followed, Caesar defeated the republican forces whose leader, Pompey, fled to Egypt where he was assassinated. Caesar followed him and fell in love with the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra. As master of Rome, Caesar used his power as dictator to relieve debt, enlarge the senate and revise the calendar. He was ultimately assassinated by republican senators.
