History 6, Review Lesson 26 – Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar was a very general and politician, in this essay I’m going to talk about his big accomplishments.

Julius was, at first a general, but rose up the ranks and became the consul of Rome in 59 BC. He named himself Dictator of Rome. After he became dictator he relived hardships and debt of citizens. He conquered North Africa, Gaul, and Spain, making then Roman colonies. He replaced the Roman calendar with the Julian calendar, the one we use today. He began many public building projects, and he gave citizenships to many of his supporters in outer provinces.

The citizens loved him, but the Senate was unhappy. Julius was taking all the power from him. So they made a plot to kill him; and succeeded! The citizens mourned, while the Senate celebrated the defeat of Julius Caesar.

If there is any lesson in this story of Julius Caesar, it would probably be, don’t take too much power, otherwise bad luck will come to you. Thanks for reading!
