Children's Literature - K. Meghan Robertson
Julius Caesar was the epitome of a leader. Or was he the opposite? Follow his life as documented through this relatively all-encompassing yet brief and easy to understand biography of Caesar. Along the way you will learn about the governmental structure in place for the Romans during the Republic and the changes that resulted from the transition from Republic to Empire—all as a result of what many saw as Caesar's attempt to revive monarchy in Rome. Were Caesar's assassins justified in their murder of one of the world's most admired leaders? Or was it a rash and unnecessary decision that sent the Romans into a period of uncertain leadership? This little "pocket guide" documents Caesar's life from his youth to his death and even includes Latin terms and phrases. Several additional features include a map of Roman conquest under Caesar, a family web of his relatives, a timeline of major events in the leader's life, and a glossary of both Latin and English terms.
