In the resolution of the play, Julius Caesar, Brutus and Cassius lose the fight they began in the plot to assassinate Caesar.  In battle, these two conspirators are defeated by Octavius and Antony.  Instead of protecting the republic, they have ensured victory for Caesar's rightful heir, which would help to usher in the end of that republic.  However, Brutus does not regret the decision he made, saying that he did the right thing for Rome, even if it failed.
