Julius Caesar was well known between 49 B.C. and 44 B.C. After he was assinated he was ruler twice. Which I thought was weird.
He wasn't used for anything besides the fact he was a great ruler.
A story about Julius Caesar is about who killed him. There was a gang of people who killed had killed him, Gaius Cassius Longinus, Decimus Junius Brutus, and Marcus Junius Brutus. They stabbed him repeatedly until they knew he was dead, this happened at the theater of Pompey on the Ides of March. Otherwise known as March 15, 44 B.C.
Caesar's allegiance with Cleopatra and Egypt, further extended the power of Rome.
People do celebrate a day for him they put on plays to show his life and him dying, and they admire statues of him.
