Example text

Mark Antony, a Roman politician and general who, as a military commander and administrator, was an important supporter of Julius Caesar, learned of the plot the night before from a terrified Liberatore named Servilius Casca. Fearing the worst, he hurried to warn Caesar. The senators, however, intercepted Caesar before he reached the senate chamber and directed him to an adjoining room. As Caesar began to read the false petition, Casca pulled down Caesar’s tunic and thrust his dagger at his neck.

She fled, with her sister Arsinoë, to neighboring Syria. There she hoped to raise an army that would allow her to return to Egypt and reclaim her throne. Meanwhile, Julius Caesar became the most powerful man in the world. The triumvirate that had been ruling Rome had collapsed.

Fed up with Cleopatra’s obstinacy, he was on the point of invading nearly defenseless Egypt when he was suddenly summoned by Brutus to join him at Philippi. Trying to secure recognition for Caesarion from Dolabella, Caesar’s former lieutenant, Cleopatra sent him the four legions that Caesar had left in Egypt. c. Her plan to join Mark Antony and Octavian with a large fleet of ships after Dolabella’s death was foiled by a violent storm.
