in 709 AUC, Gaius Julius Caesar, listening to the dreams of his wife, sends a small group of his house guards to the Senate house in Rome. There, they find almost 5 dozen conspirators ready to attack and kill Caesar. The guards, outnumbered by the senators, barely make it out of the Senate alive to report back to their master. Caesar rallies the people of Rome to take the Senate, and arrives at the head of his unruly army just as the conspirators were fleeing. There is pitched battle in the streets of the Eternal City as the conspirators and Caesar's men fight for control of the Republic. Caesar wins the struggle, and crowns himself Emperor of Rome; exactly the result that the conspirators had feared. After his coronation, Caesar sentences the remaining assassins to death, and they are crucified along the Appian Way, as a warning to all others who would oppose Caesar.
