After Lepidus retired from running for dictator, it left only Octavian and Marc Anthony. As Marc Anthony and Cleopatra set out to take the throne in Rome, they went to western Rome in Asia Minor to win battles.

By now, Tiberius, Augustus' adopted son, became the second emperor of the Roman Empire.
At the age of four Octavian’s father passed away and even though he was still very young, this event left a large impact on his life. Octavian was a very bright boy and never ceased to amaze people he possessed a quality that not many leaders of the time had – grace. At the ripe age of 15 he was appointed the role of Pontifex. However, this was just the beginning.

He had great sympathy for the traditions of the old Roman Republic than previous rulers of the house of Caesar. But a futile revolt in the Senate, within a year after he became emperor, made him favour the army. In 43AD, he conquered Britain, where his troops accepted him as a god (Smith, Mahlon.
The year following, his father, Domitius, died of edema, and Nero’s inheritance was seized by his uncle Caligula, the emperor at the time. Nero was not left parentless or powerless for long. In the year 41 A.D., Caligula along with his family was murdered and Claudius became the emperor of Rome. Claudius allowed the return Agrippina and took her as his fourth wife. Nero, who was now Claudius’ oldest song and consequently his heir, was next in line for the throne.
Ever since he was a young boy, he was destined to become the next great leader. For example, Octavian along with his friend Marcus Agrippa went to visit the Sibyl of Cumae (oracle). When the Sibyl saw him, she bowed at his feet and said that he would be the next great leader. He did not believe her at the time, but just a few years later Julius Caesar would be dead and he would have power. Over the course of his long and spectacular career as “Principate,” he put an end to the collapse of the Republic, and established a system that would stand in the Roman government for three centuries.
The conspirators saw the problem that had arised and so they planned the murder of Caesar on the Ides of March. Caesar was killed and there was another triumvirate formed. Caesar was a strong military leader that had showed strength and courage to take over the town and he was able to form a civilization that was strong militarily and politically.
He completed his school time with ease, taking only a year to do what everyone else had to do in three. Napoleon was considered a hero for what he did for France by the way he ruled and sought out justice for his country. The revolution affected Napoleon by causing opportunities for Napoleon to quickly move up the chain of command until he was a general at the age of twenty four. He ended the revolution in 1799 and was then named "France's first Consul" by 1800. Although he was considered a dictator, he ended the French Revolution which compromised of violent, pointless death that came with the Terror and then the Great Terror.
His older brother, Tiberus, also pursued a political career as a roman tribune; however, when Gaius was 21, Tiberus was viciously slain by the republics senate. At this Gaius seemed to aspire to a quiet life, wanting nothing to do with those responsible for his brother’s death (Plutarch 75ACE: 1). Although his quiet attitude would soon change, it is clear that his family lineage and brother’s murder would come to play a large part in Gaius’s life. Gaius’ family background did play a part in his accomplishments and rise to power, although his motivations were not purely family based. When Gaius was 28 he was elected quaestor and was sent to Sardina to attend Orestes (Plutarch 75ACE: 1), this was his first step into power as it would lead him into his position as tribune.
An assassination plot was devised to put an end to his rule. His death ultimately led to the end of the Roman Republic and the start of the Roman Empire. Julius Caesar’s legacy will be remembered by his brilliant military victories, his rise to political fame, and his role in the First Triumvirate. Not much information is given about Julius Caesar’s early life because he had lost the works he had written as a child. It is known that Caesar was educated by a man named Marcus Antonius Gnipho.
This is admirable. Caesar's son, Augustus, had ended what Caesar began. An empire. Even though sources claim that over a million enemies were killed during his campaign, Julius was never ... ... middle of paper ... ...it. If I was not able to find evidence of the conspiracy, then I would make sure he would understand to deploy dozens of guards to stop the assassination from ever occurring.
