Famous Assassins And What Happened to Them

Brutus

20. Brutus

Many have heard of the assassination of Julius Caesar, which took place in 44 BC. The Roman Emperor was assassinated by a large group of senators, along with his friend Brutus.

Brutus was a Roman senator and a very good friend of Caesar. Unfortunately, when Caesar began to take more power, Brutus decided to act against him and oppose what he was running for. They fought in a few battles against one another but were always defeated by Caesar.

Brutus and a few other senators decided to put an end to Caesar and attacked him at a meeting. Because there were so many assailants, Caesar and his staff were killed quickly. His death sprung a series of civil wars, which onset the terms “The ides of March.”
