Julius Caesar The Making of a Dictator

In the series finale of “Julius Caesar: The Making of a Dictator,” viewers will explore the transformation of Julius Caesar from a powerful leader to a dictator as he seizes control of Rome and consolidates his grip over the republic.

The episode, “Ides of March,” airing on PBS on Tuesday, April 16, delves into Caesar’s increasing grasp for power. Originally appointed dictator for one year to restore peace, Caesar extends his rule first to ten years and then declares himself dictator for life, marking a pivotal shift toward tyranny.

As Caesar’s ambition grows, a group of senators, including some of his closest allies, feel threatened by his unchecked power. Among them are Brutus and Cassius, who plot to end Caesar’s rule through assassination. They believe that removing Caesar is the only way to save the republic from his growing authoritarianism.

The episode explores the tension between Caesar’s pursuit of power and the senators’ desperate attempt to preserve the democratic values of the Roman Republic. This tension builds toward the infamous Ides of March, the date on which Caesar was assassinated.
