On March 15, 44 BCE, Julius Caesar is assassinated. His role in history becomes further crystalized by England’s William Shakespeare during the Elizabethan era with his tragedy, Julius Caesar.

Soothsayer: Beware the ides of March.
Caesar: What man is that?
Brutus: A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March. 105
Caesar: Set him before me; let me see his face.
Cassius: Fellow, come from the throng; look upon Caesar.
Caesar: What say’st thou to me now? speak once again.
Soothsayer: Beware the ides of March.
Caesar: He is a dreamer; let us leave him: pass. 110
