Caesar's quotes

  1. 2. Shakespeare's version evidently follows in the tradition of the Roman historian Suetonius, who reports that others have claimed Caesar's last words were the Greek phrase " καὶ σὺ τέκνον;"[2] (transliterated as "Kai su, teknon?": "You too, my child?" in English or "Tu quoque, Brute, fili mi" in Latin) - though Suetonius himself claims Caesar said nothing as he died.[3] Plutarch also reports that Caesar said nothing and merely pulled his toga over his head when he saw Brutus among the conspirators.[4] The version best known in the English-speaking world is the Latin phrase Et tu, Brute?, Brute is the vocative of Brutus
  2. 3. Alea iacta est (also alea jacta est, Latin: "The die has been cast") is a Latin phrase attributed by Suetonius to Julius Caesar on January 10, 49 BC as he led his army across the River Rubicon in northern Italy. With this step, he entered Italy at the head of his army in defiance of the Roman Senate and began his long civil war against Pompey and the Optimates. Iacta est = perfect passive
  3. 4. Where is the Rubicon river?
  4. 7. Veni, vidi, viciis a famous Latin sentence reportedly written by Julius Caesar in 47 BC as a comment on his short war with Pharnaces II of Pontus.
  5. 10. Kaiser (German for emperor, leader) Czar/Tsar (Russian for person with dictatorial powers) July (our 7 th month) Caesarian = believed that Caesar was born this way
  6. 11. Caesar salad named NOT for the Roman, but for Cesar Cardini, restaurant owner in Tijuana, Mexico, who is said to have served the first one in 1924.
