Overview


Synopsis

Julius Caesar has just emerged victorious in a series of Roman civil wars and has become extremely popular with the populous. A fellow general, Cassius, organizes a group of conspirators, including Caesar’s close friend Brutus, to stop Caesar from becoming king. Meanwhile, Caesar ignores warnings from both a soothsayer and his wife, Calpurnia. The conspirators pretend to petition for a recall so that they may crowd around Caesar, and then stab him to death. Caesar fights back at first, but when he sees Brutus takes his turn, Caesar gives in to his fate. Caesars' friend, Mark Antony, then speaks to the crowds and unites them against the conspirators. Antony agrees to join Octavius Caesar and General Lepidus in a three-man government. Civil war now erupts between the new government and the conspirators. In the end Antony's forces are victorious and Brutus commits suicide.
