Marcus Brutus

On this day in 44 BC, Julius Caesar was stabbed to death in the Roman Senate by Marcus Junius Brutus and a group of approximately 60 Roman senators. Although the Senate passed an amnesty on the assassins, the uproar among the population caused Brutus and the conspirators to leave Rome. A series of civil wars ultimately followed, ending with the victory of Caesar’s adopted heir, Octavian and the formation of the Roman Empire. Octavian would become the first Roman Emperor under the name Augustus.
