Julius Caesar is popular. The citizens want him as Emperor. A few patricians want no Emperor (well...probably...unless it's them...I mean who turns down that honor). Fearing Caesar's potential power the Senators take care of him...but not in a very nice way.
Caesar's kinsman Antony isn't too happy with the political season and makes a speech or two. The citizens are riled. There are fights.
All the while there are soothsayers, two people named Cinna, a Cobbler, a Carpenter, some conspirators, Tribunes, Senators and two wives that should have been listened to a bit more attentively.
After the assassination sides are chosen and battles are fought and the once happy Republic acquires a new Emperor when Octavius Caesar, a member of the Triumvirate, slickly finds himself as the last man standing.
