Was Brutus a good man?


Brutus, or Marcus Junius Brutus Caepio, was a Roman senator and one of several men who conspired to assassinate Julius Caesar. Although not politically ambitious, Brutus was initially a money lender who charged high interest rates then later as a senator became unsatisfied with the politics of Julius' dictatorship in Rome (Brutus was a republican). Brutus' mother was also a mistress of Caesar's.

Based on what I've read, I would not consider Brutus a good man.
