The IDES of MARCH

6 myths about the Ides of March and killing Caesar:


This is what most of us know about the death of Julius Caesar, half-remembered from movies and plays:
  • Some soothsayer said, "Beware the Ides of March."
  • A few idealistic Romans decided to win back Rome for the people.
  • Caesar got stabbed by Brutus with a big sword, said "Et tu, Brute?" and died nobly.
All of that is wrong. Incredibly, we know an awful LOT about the conspiracy and what happened on this day, two thousand and fifty nine years ago.
