Caesars Uncle?

Recommended Posts

I've never heard about this befor, but acording to this Ceasar had an uncle called Sextus Julius Ceasar.

Has anyone read this, or is it a mistake? Or did he die early in life?

No this is not a mistake Sextus Julius Caesar was Julius's uncle, he served under Marius then held preatorship in 94 BC then a consulship in 91 BC. he died during the siege of Asculmum.

He was if I remember correctly Caesar's fathers cousin.

 

Caesar's father who was also called Gaius Julius Caesar had a brother called Sextus Julius Caesar so surely this would make him Caesar's uncle.......wouldn't it??

 

There were quite a few Sextus Julius'.
