Julius Caesar descended from Roman nobility, but he also claimed that he was a descendant of Aeneas, an ancient king and founder of Rome.  He favored the causes of  the common people more than aristocrats, in fact, Caesar’s life and career was shaped by the pressures of finance and  politics.  More in depth information may be found at the link below.
