    Gaius Marius and the Gracchi

    Update: I did discover that during Marius' Praetorship he opposed a law which would have continued Gaius Gracchus' grain reforms. This could have been simply to placate the aristocrats who he enraged during his Tribuneship, or it could have been his personal stance. If the latter is true, he might very well have stood opposed to the revolutionaries, although that brings his later political decisions into question.

    Gaius Marius and the Gracchi

    Ave UNRV family! I have a question that has been bothering me for years. For those of you whom I haven't met yet, I am writing a series about Quintus Sertorius, the famous Marian general who led a rebellion against the Sullan government. More recently, however, I've begun a spinoff series from the POV of Gaius Marius, detailing his early life which hasn't been addressed often enough in fiction. So far the only book in the series "Son of Mars" details his youth and service in Spain under Scipio Aemilianus, and it's time for the next installment. As I move forward, there is a nagging question which I have to answer. How did Marius feel about Tiberius and Gaius Gracchus? He obviously displayed a tendency for Populare politics later on in his career, but at this time he worshipped the ground that Scipio Aemilianus walked on. The latter was brother-in-law to the Gracchi brothers, but also vehemently opposed them, leaving a muddy picture for how Marius may have looked on these revolutionaries. What do you think? I'm not sure there are many sources detailing Marius' personal thoughts of these two men, or his activities during this time, but I'd love to hear your input. Thanks, guys! Vincent B. Davis II

    Welcome and Introduce Yourself Here

    Hey there UNRV family! I am so happy to be here. I've been studying Ancient Rome since 2010, and somehow never stumbled on this site until recently! The first thing I did was purchase the wall map, and now I'm excited to engage more on these forums! I am the author of "The Man with Two Names" and the upcoming "The Noise of War", a best selling series on one of my favorite Romans, Quintus Sertorius. I plan on writing about Ancient Rome for the rest of my life, and am so excited to have this resource to help me do that! Thank, UNRV!
