Our Opinions of Julius Caesar

102/100 B.C     Julius Caesar was born to a patrian family.

85 B.C     Julius’ father died. And a few years later he married Cornelia, the daughter of a prominent member of the Popular faction; she later gave birth to Julius’only legitimate child, a daughter, Julia.

79 B.C     Julius, on the staff of a military legate, was awarded the civic crown (oak leaves) for saving the life of a citizen in battle.

75 B.C     While sailing to Greece, Julius was kidnapped by Cilician pirates and held for ransom. When informed that they intended to ask for 20 talents, he is supposed to have insisted that he was worth at least 50. He maintained a friendly, joking relationship with the pirates while the money was being raised, but warned them that he would track them down and have them crucified after he was released. He did just that, with the help of volunteers, as a warning to other pirates, but he first cut their throats to lessen their suffering because they had treated him well.

72 B.C     Julius was elected military tribune.

69 B.C     He spoke at the funerals of both his aunt, Julia, and his wife, Cornelia.
