Ides of March: March 15 Not Just about Julius Caesar

Ides of March may be quite unknown to many already, but for those who loves history, it one of the most significant dates to remember.

Ides means to the 15th day of the month of March, May, July and October. Added to that is the 13th day of any other month.

It was during that date that the powerful Julius Caesar was stabbed to death. It was around 44 BC that one of the most powerful men that has ever lived on earth found his end against the very people he worked with.

Julius Caesar was stabbed to death for about 23 times at the Roman Senate. The killing of Caesar was a conspiracy by more than 60 people led by Gaius Cassius Longinus and Marcus Junius Brutus.

The dramatic event has been the source of inspiration for many immortal plays and musicals like that “Julius Caesar” by the famous English playwright, Shakespeare. On that play became famous the line, “beware of the Ides of March.”

So will the Ides of March also signify the end of many powerful political figures in our time like Gaddafi of Libya?

Unless, many more of his men will conspire against him.

Or the reported shutting down of Facebook on March 15?
