It is known that Caesar was educated by a man named Marcus Antonius Gnipho. In his late adolescence, he took up a political position during the Roman Civil Wars. He quickly learned to associate himself with the most powerful people of Rome; he would only marry Cornelia, “the daughter of the most powerful Roman of the era, the consul Lucius Cornelius Cinna”. Shortly after that, Lucius was killed by Sulla, the future “dictator” of Rome. Sulla demanded that Caesar divorce Cornelia; he refused, so Sulla stripped him of his priesthood of Jupiter and extracted his dowry from his marriage to Cornelia.
Madame Bovary was problematic in nineteenth century France because Flaubert glorified adultery and disgraced marriage.

A legacy lives on! Principate Imperator Augustus Gaius Julius Caesar Octavius, the adopted son of Julius Caesar, took the Roman Empire by force in 44 BC when Julius was brutally murdered. Thrown into the harsh world of politics at only the age of 19 (12), Augustus took Rome by storm and ruled as emperor from about 27 BC to 14 AD (Britannica). Emperor Augustus, a beloved father figure of Rome, influenced the Roman Empire positively. He did this by bringing Rome in to the age of Pax Romana, rebuilding it into an empire of marble and reforming the Roman government.
But he was now Julius Caesar's son. As Rome once again fell into devastation, they needed someone who could pull Rome back together and take control. This led to the second triumvirate. The three men who were running in this were Lepidus, Octavian, and Marc Anthony. After Lepidus retired from running for dictator, it left only Octavian and Marc Anthony.

Gaius Octavius Thurinus (better known as Augustus) was the man who would turn the Roman Republic into an Autocracy, ruled by one man: Himself. It is true that Augustus built the Roman Empire around himself, and refurbished Rome for the better however, he achieved his title Imperator through rather questionable means. He emerged as emperor by defeating people who were once allies, he forced Marc Antony to be exiled to Gaul successfully defeating him as a rival, and he also had many supporters and was extremely popular. Augustus was said to be quite cruel in his younger years when he was known only as Octavian, but becoming much milder later in his life but was always ready to use brutality wherever needed. Augustus was the one to fix the mistakes
This proved the ideal elite Roman wife in society, which was supporting, dutiful and loyal4. Octavian did not listen to her, he did not start a war but he used this information as propaganda against Mark Antony, he exploited that Mark Antony was under the control of a foreign women, which was added with the influence of alcohol, other drugs or magic spells. Octavian talked about how Mark Antony’s lack of self-discipline, masculinity did not only look bad on Antony but to the Roman state as well5.
