This is a 21 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Ancient Civilizations - Julius Caesar. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Julius Caesar's birth, July 12 or 13, 100 BC, marked the beginning of a new chapter in Roman history. A politically adept and popular leader of the Roman Republic, Julius Caesar significantly transformed what became known as the Roman Empire, by greatly expanding its geographic reach and establishing its imperial system.
Caesar was eventually made dictator for life and hailed as the Father of his Country. For Caesar and his countrymen, his rule proved instrumental in reforming Rome. He would serve just a year's term before his assassination, but in that short period Caesar greatly transformed the empire. He relieved debt, reformed the Senate, the Roman calendar, reorganized how local government was constructed.
In addition, he resurrected 2 city-states, Carthage and Corinth, which had been destroyed by his predecessors, and he granted citizenship to a number of foreigners. He also proved to be a benevolent victor by inviting some of his defeated rivals to join him in the government.
Following Caesar's death, a power struggle ensued in Rome, leading to the end of the Roman Republic. After a senatorial coup, Caesar's was assassinated on the Ides of March. Caesar quickly became a martyr in the new Roman Empire, and just 2 years after his death he became the first Roman figure to be deified. The Senate also gave him the title "The Divine Julius."
