Julius Caesar

Recently I started watching the film Julius Caesar (2002) which further triggered my interest in the Father of Classical Cryptography.
The film gave much greater insight into the Roman political situation of the era. The film starts with the tyranny of Sulla and the flight of Julius Caesar with the help of Pompei. His return to Roma after the death of Sulla. Julius Caesar helping Pompei in amassing the legions for crushing Pirates.

Julius Caesar along with Marcus Licinius Crassus and Pompei was part of the First Triumverate.
Historians doesn't consider Brutus as a villain as his intention behind assasination of Caesar was restoration of Roman Republic.
