The Ides of March are still remembered for the savage murder of Julius Caesar, which took place on 15th of March 44 BC

How things happened? That morning Caesar’s wife, Calpurnia, tried to dissuade him from going to the Senate because she had seen many troubling omens, but Decimus Brutus (one of the conspirators) went to his house and urged him to attend the meeting.

Caesar trusted him and followed him to the Curia of Pompey, going out along with Marco Antonio. A slave during the way tried in vain to approach them to warn him. An oracle tried to give him a sheet with the description of what was about to happen but because of the crowd, Caesar did not read it.

Caesar had recently abolished his bodyguard and when he arrived at the entrance of the Curia, even the gigantic Marco Antonio was held off by two conspirators with an excuse.

So he went alone into the room and sat down as usual. While the 23 stab wounds struck him, he received each shot with great contempt of danger and fear. When he recognized his dear friend Junius Brutus among his murderers, he exclaimed:

“Tu quoque, Brute, fili mi!” (You too, Brutus, my son!)

At that point he stopped to defend himself, stayed quiet and covered himself with his tunic, delivering to the story a last act of pride, until the end.

Later, the chase to the murders started: memorable remained the Marco Antonio’s speech while haranguing the people to vengeance, showing the bloody robe of Caesar. All murders of Julius Caesar died killed or disappeared within a few years.

After more than 2000 years the tourists continue to place flowers on the #Ara Caesar (in the picture above). The history of the world on that day radically changed direction, but we do not know what could have happened: maybe the future Roman Empire would resist more and maybe today we would speak Latin in Europe, we would use the Roman method of counting, we may would have very different customs.
