Julius Caesar came from a patrician family. He was raised to believe in the glory of Rome, there is even evidence that his father beat him daily in order to strengthen his resolve. Caesar was one of the world's greatest generals, his strategies are still taught in military academies today.One must understand the dynamics of the Roman Army in the 1st century B.C.E. in order to understand Rome. Julius Caesar was one of the greatest generals Rome or for that matter the world would ever know. His tactics were cemented in the people. If the people learn to love you... Rome will love you. Caesar had a powerful personality, which he used to his advantage. With the riches he gained while conquering Gaul, he always remembered the people of Rome. He fed them, he paid their debts, why wouldn't a Roman love him? The question bears deeper investigation. Caesar understood the power of the people, however it can be argued that Caesar had a spectrum of motives. Most of which included his concentration of power.

Julius Caesar gets a bad rap sometimes.  He wanted to make a government that was truly for the people and actually build a real form of Congress.  He tried to save Rome by building relations with other empires, but unfortunately the traitors that took him down led to the fall of Rome.

Julius Caesar did create a stable and prosperous empire. He was also well-loved by his people. Although he did rule with an iron fist and make some questionable personal choices, he still was good for his people's prosperity.
