Marcus Brutus

Imperator 50 - 42 B. C.

Marcus Brutus was born about 95 B. C. He sided with Pompey the great and became a member of the Pompeian Party at an early date. When Julius Caesar defeated Pompey at the Battle of Pharsalus in 48 B. C., he pardoned Brutus. Brutus returned the favor by leading the band of conspirators who assassinated Caesar in the Roman Forum on the Ides of March, 44 B. C.
