Parent Category: Ancient Rome
Marc Antony was the last husband of Cleopatra and one of the members of the second triumvirate after the death of Caesar. He started a civil war with Brutus and Cassius (the main conspirators who planned Caesar's assassination) for revenge, and won. He eventually went to war with Octavius, Caesar's nephew, who was another triumvirate, and committed suicide after Octavius's armies invaded the capitol of Egypt, Alexandria. Questions should include things relating to his death, his family, and his military successes and failures.
Mark Antony would definitely NOT be a good president. He has been characterized as a good subordinate, but one who can't handle authority. He was a guy who enjoyed the perks of authority, but didn't or couldn't do the work.

It is unnecessary He doesnt want to kill Marc Antony because he doesnt want it to seem as if these conspirators wanted to just kill these political leaders. Brutus believed that it was only necessary to kill Caesar. The reason for that is Brutus thought Rome should remain a republic.
