The conspirators united “since even the general populations were no longer pleased with present conditions [under Caesars rule]” (“Lives of the 12 Caesars”). By foreigners being allowed into the senate, the population begun to believe Caesar had become an oppressive and cruel ruler, no longer for the “commonwealth” and asked for aid in their liberty both secretly and publicly (“Lives of the 12 Caesars”). In the account, “The Assassination of Julius Caesar”, written by Marcus Brutus, does not much speak on Caesar himself but by the will of so many whom conspired against him gives the impression that Caesar was seen by the majority as a “selfish dictator”.

Caesar's ghost was a representation of Brutus' guilt.
The tragic hero also must have one hamartia, which is a fatal flaw. This fatal flaw is the cause of the person's downfall. This also means that it is a noble person, and it is one part of their personality that brings them down. Julius Caesar is a tragic hero because he was a champion of the people, but it was his hubris that led to his death.

One of the most influential political and military leaders of all time, Caesar was also a highly intelligent man and an exceptional orator. However, acquiring this absolute power was no mean feat, and Caesar had well equipped himself through previous expeditions with all the resources necessary to gain power in Ancient Rome. One such “expedition” was Julius Caesar’s conquest of Gaul. Through Gaul, Caesar found a way to acquire power and prestige for himself within the Roman political arena.
