Describe the supernatural events that takes place in Julius Caesar?
Some of the supernatural elements :
- At the end of Act I, a terrible storm comes up. Casca and Cicero each believe that the storm foreshadows events surrounding Caesar's impending assassination. Casca is fearful of a host of strange sightings and believes that these signs prognosticate evil. Cicero believes that the storm's power mirrors the power of the conspirators. Cassius is also energized by the storm.
- Caesar's wife, Calpurnia has a dream about a statue of her husband that was full of holes that bled profusely. Fearing evil, she tried to convince Caesar that her dream was a warning for him not to go to the Senate that day. Ceasar even has one of his servants go to the priests to do a sacrifice to see what they have to say about Calpurnia's fears. When the animal was sacrificed, there was no heart in it... a bad omen indeed. Caesar even ignores this omen when Decius Brutus re-interprets Calpurnia's dream to have a favorable meaning, just to entice Caesar to come to the Senate (and to his doom).
- Brutus' conscience conjours up the ghost of Caesar who tells Brutus that he will see him at Philippi. Brutus is feeling guilty for his part in the conspiracy and his conscience manifests his guilt in the form of a ghost. It is at Philippi that Brutus meets his end, so the appearance of the ghost foreshadows his demise.
The supernatural events in Julius Cesar are: the graves yield out the dead, men all in fire walk up and down the streets of Rome there are men with their hands on fire but yet they don't feel their hands burning, lion gives birth to its cubs in the streets of Rome Cesar's ghost appearing before Brutus blood drizzling on the capitol,
On the surface, the assassination of Julius Caesar could be seen as the event that ended the republic, but this is merely the final incident of a long series of events that destroyed the republic.

Although Julius Caesar experienced many important events you would have to say that being made dictator for life was the most important, as it gave him supreme power that could not be revoked.

Cleopatra and Ptolemy XIII went to all out war in 47 BC. Julius Caesar intervened or interfered, (depending upon your perception of the events) and this was the Alexandrian War in which Caesar came very close to being defeated and Ptolemy died.

The major world events that took place during Cleopatra's reign was the establishing of Cleopatra on the throne by Julius Caesar, the assassination of Julius Caesar, the Roman triumvirate, her alliance with Antony and their defeat at Actium, Octavian conquering Egypt. This latter event ultimately resulted in her suicide.
He's called Octavian. Julius Caesar adopted him and he changed his name to Octavius Caesar. It is under this name he appears in Shakespeare's play Antony and Cleopatra. After the events in that play took place, Octavian, now known as Caesar, became the ruler of the entire Roman Empire. He changed his name again, to Augustus Caesar, the first Emperor of Rome.
The play Julius Caesar covers the events in Ancient Rome between 45 and 42 BCE. Julius Caesar was one of the members of the First Triumvirate of powerful men with Crassus and Pompey. Caesar had declared war on Pompey by crossing the Rubicon River with his army against the express orders of the Senate. He defeated Pompey and then later dealt with a rebellion of Pompey's sons at the Battle of Munda. The play starts…
There is no evidence that Julius Caesar was exceptionally fond of gladiators. However, as a politician he realized their value in crowd pleasing so sponsored spectacular shows. Of course there was a secondary, financial motive for Caesar's gladiatorial events, the fighters were all from his gladiatorial school in Campania and as owner of the school, Caesar was paid for the services of his men.
It is Julius Caesar not two names. He won battles against the German tribes and built a bridge across the Daube to invade the Germanic tribes. He was made Caesar, married Cleopatra, had two children with her, was murdered in the forum, and made an impact so powerful that even today flowers are put on the spot where he died.
The play Julius Caesar is based on actual historical events. Just like really happened in history, Brutus and Cassius were defeated and Octavian (soon to be known as Augustus Caesar), Mark Antony and Lepidus become co-rulers of what will soon become the Roman Empire. The ending differs a little from history in that there were actually two battles at Philippi which Shakespeare has collapsed into one.
Historical events or historical figures are often a source of literature. Writers have taken historical giants such as Julius Caesar to create plays about this figure as did Shakespeare in his epic play Julius Caesar. Screen writing has given us films from Spartacus to Cleopatra. The writer's purpose is not to be a historian but rather to enrich a story about love, power, and struggle.
No supernatural event has ever been proven to be historical, so professional historians will tend not to describe them as such, regardless of their own private beliefs. However, history books will often mention "reports" that a supernatural event took place, or that a prophecy was reportedly fulfilled.
Rather than who influenced Julius Caesar, it should be what influenced him to become a politician. The events of his youth, under the dictator Sulla, were certainly a factor, especially since he was related to Sulla's enemy, Marius. Remember too, that he had a big ego, and liked his attention. Politics was a sure way to gain fame. Some historians feel that his mother encouraged him.
