Most famous figure of the Roman Empire, Julius Caesar was a former Godborn of Zeus known for his role in the roman expansion over western Europe up to the isle of Britannia and - wrongly - for being the first Roman Emperor.

As a conqueror, he was the reason that brought the Theoi and the Aesir at odds in the Civil Wars of the Gods, but not only.
During the late 1st Century BC, Zeus deemed necessary to seize control of the human aspect of the Civil Wars. In other words: take control of the - then - Roman Republic…and Julius Caesar was his best political tool to succeed with this manoeuver thanks to his well-established position.

Shortly before the Gaulic Wars, Zeus advised his son about his coming duties which the Godborn had no difficulty to agree upon. Indeed, the Roman Republic had become infected by corruption and his main support, Pompey, had recently betrayed him and took control of the Roman Senate. At the end of the Gaulic Wars, Caesar came back to Rome but Pompey had the Senate order the Dux Bellorum to disband his army and enter Rome unarmed, arguing his mandate was over. Anticipating such actions would also disband his own political immunity and would make him vulnerable to any trial, Caesar crossed the Rubicon - the symbolic border of Rome city - and pronounced the famous "Alea jacta est", Let the die be cast.
Thus began the Roman Civil War. Thanks to his legions, Caesar marched over Rome and tried to capture Pompey, who fled to Spain beforehand. After 27 days of route, Caesar defied Pompey at Illyria and defeated him, but the fleeing general managed to escape once again. Upon his return in the capital city, Caesar was inducted Imperator - an emergency magistrate with close to complete rule over military actions of the State - and tracked down Pompey in Greece, defeating but losing him once again.
Pompey's trail led in Egypt, where Pharaoh's assassins presented Pompey's head and ring to newly inducted Dictator. As a response to this unexepected and unwanted turn of events, Caesar made the assassins executed. But peace was not there yet…

While in Egypt, Caesar was caught in the Egyptian Civil War between Cleopatra and her younger brother-husband Pharaoh. Instead of going back to Rome, Caesar stepped in the Civil War and sided with Cleopatra by withstanding the siege of Alexandria. Later on, he defeated Pharaoh's forces and instated Cleopatra as the new ruler of Egypt.

Needless to say the Neter was not happy to endure a Roman Godborn interfering with their business. And they were not the only ones. Secret Societies began to take actions, especially the Illuminati. To this day, nobody knows if the enlightened were helped by the Neter or not. What is certain is, 5 years after his crossing of the Rubicon, acting as a premice of the Milesians invasion and the Concordat of Stonehenge, Julius Caesar was assassinated by a group of senators "recruited" and led by an Illuminati agent: Brutus, Caesar's foster-son.
