Men who owed him everything – their lives, their fortunes, their careers, their honours. Yet for months some of the best and brightest of Rome conspired to commit what became known as one of the most infamous assassinations in history.

We all stand up against the spirit of Caesar,
And in the spirit of men there is no blood ...
Let’s carve him as a dish fit for the gods,
Not hew him as a carcass fit for hounds. (Assassinations & Rome & Sacrifice) William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar II i 166-168 & 173-174
