was on this day that Julius Caesar was stabbed to death in the Roman Senate house.
Sixty conspirators attacked him, lead by Marcus Junius Brutus and Gaius Cassius
conspirators believed that killing Caesar would restore the Roman Republic, but
it didn't. Rome was subsequently plunged into a series of civil wars which eventually
saw Octavian, Caesar's grandnephew, emerge as the first Roman emperor (Augustus).
you know: Julius Caesar introduced the Julian calendar, which, although it was
slightly modified in 16th century, is basically the same calendar we use today.
