    Please provide some evidence for this. there were actually two brutus's around at the time of caeser's assassination, Decimus Junius Brutus Albinus who was a roman general and admiral and close friend and adviser to caeser, but also one of his assassins and Marcus Junius Brutus, he was a cousin of decimus brutus and nephew of caesers enemy marcus portcius cato, who's daughter he marries, he was a supporter of pompey who changed sides after pharsalus, he was made governer of cisalpine gaul and reluctantly drawn into the assassination plot. hope this helps a little

    Eurovision Song Contest

    I'm not sure what's funnier...that video, or the fact that the german media is claiming that they didn't win because of backlash from World War II. Sigh. Geez, guys...it's germans playing country music. What did they expect? germans playing country music was the funniest part of the whole show ...... complete idiots! suppose it beats grown men in shorts slapping their thighs whilst eating big fat sausages!!!!

    Ask The Expert - Dr. Arthur Keaveney

    thanks for your time Dr Keaveney during the time of sulla's proscriptions around 80bc when he decided to let caeser live even though he had defied sulla's order to divorce his then wife Cornelia, my first question is why did he do this knowing that caeser was a relative of his most hated enemy Marius? secondly, if sulla had got rid of caeser when he had the chance what effect would this have had on the fall of the republic, ie- would the republic have survived?? thank you maximus
