Julius Caesar is the uncle of Augustus Caesar and later adopted

son and heir.

Octavian, the man who would become Augustus, was Julius Caesar's

great nephew. He was the son of Caesar's niece, Atia, who was the

daughter of Caesar's sister, Julia. Making Octavian more popular

among the supporters of the slain Julius Caesar was the fact that

Julius Caesar adopted Octavian as his son.
