Julius Caesar was a brilliant general and statesman who had a profound impact on history. Between 58 and 50 B.C. he conquered the Gauls in northern Europe, greatly adding to the size and influence of the Roman empire. Following a civil war, he became Rome's dictator and enacted many needed reforms which helped ensure the success of Rome for centuries to come. His assassination in 44 B.C. was prompted by the Roman senate's fear that he wished to become king.
