THIS IS THE END. SERIOUSLY THIS TIME. WE MEAN IT.
We cover the events of March 18 – 20, 44 BCE.
Brutus & Cassius invite the plebeians up to the Capitoline Hill and give another speech.
The Senate votes to give Caesar a public funeral, to be held in the Forum on 18 March, and to a public reading of this will.
Both are really, really bad ideas. They are probably thinking “hey we’ve killed the old man, what could go wrong now?”
At the funeral, Antony gives an impassioned speech – but probably not the one you think he gives.
And, as we wrap up the series, a young man called Octavius is catapulted onto the world stage – and nothing will ever be the same again!
