Julius Caesar was assassinated by a group of conspirators led by his closest friend and successor Marcus Junius Brutus and Gaius Cassius Longinus on March 15, 44 BC in Rome.

Caesar after the foundation of the Roman Empire had become the Dictator and unofficial ruler of the Roman Republic; he had also publicly refused to become the King of the Roman Empire. However his powers increased manifold in his later years and he came to be looked upon as an equal of the ancient Roman Gods and Kings. Various incidents took place like the minting of coins bearing his visage and the erection of his statues in public places as well as temples which led to several members of the Roman Consulate fearing that he would become an autocrat and put an end to the Roman Republic.

Accordingly a plan was hatched by some of them like Brutus and Cassius who called themselves the liberators. Caesar was assassinated as he was reading a petition and according to popular legend his last words on seeing his friend Brutus were "Et tu Brutus?" which translated liberally would mean "You too, Brutus?".

Actually it wasn't Gaius Cassius Longinus,
it was Marcus Lincinius Crassius.
Besides, Caesar's full name was Gaius Julius Caesar.

There were 2 people named Brutus who killed Caesar. The Shakespeare play isn't totally factual, like his last words to Brutus, but had things added into it to fit the iambic pentameter. It is amazing how often people think that that story actually is totally factual.

Okay it wasn't all Brutus. He was convinced by Cassius and the senate but Cassius masterminded it.

Watch Xena's episode of "Ides of March" .... Xena almost   killed him, but Calisto stopped her.   So Xena told Brutus that he was going to make a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT on Mar 15th in exchange for him telling her where Gabrielle was!      Great Episode   ;)
