More to Come.
Julius Caesar may not be technically referred to as the first
"Emperor" of Rome, but he began a dynasty that would rule the Roman
Empire for a hundred years.
In 44 B.C. the Senate bestowed upon him the
title of "Imperator" which is where the word "emperor" originates.
Though he was acting as dictator, he would not allow himself to be
referred to publicly as king or emperor but "Caesar" instead. He was
assassinated in 44 B.C. by some of his close friends, including Brutus
on the Ides of March, the 15th.
