It's unbelievable how Caesar handled the rebellious legions in Italy. They started out trying to blackmail him, 1:05:00, but in the end he had them begging to be executed at random (decimation) just for the privilege of fighting alongside him yet again. Which is what Caesar wanted and needed all along. This encapsulates exactly why Caesar was such a great leader.

Caesar was a talented pathological narcissist. Manipulating his troops was just one example. Cleopatra was the same, they both used Marc Anthony bevause he was the opposite and Human Magnet Syndrome is powerful.

Caesar, is often thought of, as a mere tyrant. There are so many different factors involved, with his character. He had: Charisma, cunning, good at deception, led from the front, never gave orders that he wouldn't do himself, was a priest, reorganized the Julian calendar; Or mathematically inclined, athletic, intuitive, a strong fighter, a carpenter, recognized his soldiers loyalty, kept many men alive, was popular with commoners, strategist, and a tactician; The list trails on. Love him or hate him: He was all around intelligent, despite the lack of telephones and internet.

@georgekapitanoff5977 From the perspective of communication, wars were fought years after they were over. Getting communication out instantly during battle wasn't something they had or research. Lol I didn't mean they weren't at all, just from the strategic aspect of modern convenience, and lack thereof. Despite all of that Julius Caesar did a pretty good job.

This is one of the best documentary series online anywhere. The graphical representations, imagery and strategic maps are aids and tools for the narrator. Sadly many documentaries try to overblow the fluff (too much eye candy, real-life enactments, etc.), and miss the mark. It's the narration, script and sequential telling of the history that matters...and you do an excellent job! I wish more documentaries were done this way.

This is easily the best documentary I've seen on the Caesarian civil wars. You guys freaking NAILED this one. I've watched just about every video there is to watch on this subject, some of them DOZENS of times and I was thrilled with this one! There is a LOT of depth on this time period and even though you guys didn't throw in a few details I would have like to have seen, you managed to do an amazing job with the overarching narrative. I can't wait for your next series on Octavian and the new Empire. THANK YOU!

Wow, never knew that the resistance against Caesar was this protracted. In books, it’s usually summarized down to chasing Pompey to Egypt, the affair with Cleopatra and the defeat of her brother, the triumphant return to Rome and then the conspiracy and assassination. I mean I get it, books have to be concise and school semesters are only so long. But man, this is pure gold!

It's really impressive how disciplined the veteran Roman legions were - incredible good troops which saved them repeatedly even when in hopeless situations. Given the orders were by voice/sound signal I'm amazed that alot of them could be coordinated. All in all it's surprising Ceasar lived so long, intersting to think what would have happened if he'd lived longer...

We know why the Hersch Corporation-owned History Channel does not go into the fine details of conflict, for they'd run the risk of exposing their own financial interests/donations in modern history's violent conflicts. And we know that most Americans have little time or inclination to know about Ancient history, therefor the History Channel is just a constant stream of "hitler is bad" and "guns are scary" that all said, your point is still important and i agree with your sentiment.

Wow, what a great job! I never realized all the issues Caesar had to deal with. His life was no cake walk by any measure. His ability to understand human behavior and serve as an outstanding leader can not be overstated. It made me realize how impressive he was and how political Rome was. Thanks again for all the research and level of detail needed to understand the man.
Lord Biscuit the Tossable
Even the likes of Pompi and Cito were very deep characters with their own goals and objectives, which I don't think is stated enough. The fact that the former had the foresight to abandon Rome (something I imagine most Romans would consider inconceivable) managed to raise a relatively inexperienced army and fully understood his own strengths and weaknesses (which was probably why he legitimately didn't want a pitched battle with Caesar, given the relative inexperience and lack of cohesiveness within his own troops, which ultimately is precisely was his undoing.) made the war in Greece compelling stuff. Plus even after his latest defeat he was fully committed to trying again until his assassination in Egypt. As much as war is a terrible thing and these were incredibly ambitious people; they also were incredibly well learned folks who knew how to wage war. Sure Caesar won and wrote history, but wow it certainly was never easy for him either.
Anglomachian Yıl önce
I remember Historia Civilis explaining that the "Not King, but Caesar!" might have been a kind of joke, since King (Rex) was a used gens name at he time, and so Caesar was basically trying to say "No, no, you have the wrong person."

@Anglomachian Interesting though how different his perspective on the same events are. I have watched his stuff for years and after watching this and the previous part here it gives some food for thought. Cesear comes over as an almost completely different man depending on which interpretation of his actions you take. Doesn't make Civils bad but its fascinating that even in something as static as history human bias still means you need multiple perspectives.

Based on his plans for expansion, I think Caesar was one of the few men in his position of influence that looked at Rome for what it was at that moment in time, an empire. However because of cultural hatred of the idea of a king, he couldn't be the role per say, but knew power-wise what he had become after the war. I feel like in that meeting with Octavian he probably shared how he saw Rome for what it was and mini groomed Octavian to change his perspective of the what Rome currently was or becoming. It's crazy, almost like a stroke of luck or divine ordination that Caesar who as a conquerer, expanded the territory, control, influence of Rome in the Mediterranean gets killed and then almost immediately, gets succeeded by one of the best Empire managers in history via Octavian aka Augustus first emperor of Rome. Almost unheard luck for a baby empire to get such a succession to fully establish itself to what we know it as today. Like think of what Rome would have become if Octavian had died for some reason and Marc Anthony was left to rule Rome after Caesar's death.

A great leader, visionary, and master of tactics. An absolute unit of a man. A life filled with glory and with the iron will to fix a corrupt broken system with the best future in mind for his people. A true genius which saw flaws in everything, exploited them, and outside of battle, such as in the case of the republican politics, passed laws to fix those issues. He achieved a true healthy balance between altruism and egotism. Incredibly tragic to face a death such as his, betrayed by the people he pardoned and by his close friends, lusting for their own undeserved fame and wealth. Had Caesar never been assassinated, its possible all of history and the world as we know it today would be entirely different if he was able to achieve his grand campaign to conquer all of Europe. The sad truth is, had Caesar become a tyrant similar to Sulla and the despot the senators feared, he would have probably lived a far longer life.

I am extremely dubious about this claim of Caesar's "Throne" as the senate was not meeting in the senate building but in temples and homes where seating would [edit: "not"] already exist. Did this throne get toted from building to building? Were the benches of the senate likewise toted from building to building. More likely Caesar did have a servant bring chair with a cushion to be certain that he would have a comfortable place to sit and this has been exaggerated.
Vengeance will be mine
Love how Ceasar makes bridges everywhere anywhere, the father of army engineers corps. Lol 😂. Fascinated by how well Ceasar used his general's to create distinctive distractions for inducing proper flanking maneuvering potential . The best general's manipulate there enemy into doing a calculated move , by a calculated risk or sacrifice provoking the enemies into walking into the strong suite of said general.

this series is amazing. Id love to see more on different historical figures. Caesars death was tragic, being killed by friends and those he sparred. Maybe this is why tyrants chose to be ruthless. I am so intrigued at the military tactics of the time. It seems as though construction was as much if not more than actual fighting. It takes a well rounded, intelligent, creative problem solver to be successful in those times.

To me, I think that Julius Caesar felt that the Roman Army was the best fighting force on the face of the planet. He was proud of the Roman Army as he was proud of the Roman empire and it's works. Everything that he did back in Rome, be it for good or ill, I believe that he did with an eye toward sustaining the civilization that raised and supported the Roman Armies that he had done so much with in the past. When he was murdered, the conspirators were in a hurry to get the deed done because Caesar was about to embark on a campaign that would see the borders of the Roman empire expanded, and Roman honor, as he saw it, assuaged for the death of his fellow triumvar, crassas at the hands of the Parthians. The upcoming Parthian campaign was why he did everything he did, good and bad, I feel.

Alexander the Great or Caesar, the argument will rage forever; but personally I believe it was in fact Caesar. His ability to adopt to multi situation, on Sea, Land, and Horses, against opponents that were not just incredibly diverse, but also equal to him ( on paper ). Yet he prevailed in almost every single battle.

@The Awesome Man They are both excellent. HBO's rendition is of course a dramatization of events, with multiple fictional (as in not historically documented) characters, all of them very plausible though. While it's a period piece set against Caesar's life and death, and Octavian's rise to prominence, Antony and Octavian's mother, Atia of the Julii, are the mainstays of the series. Totally worth binging on; it's the kind of dramatic content that couldn't have been produced in today's PC climate. K&G's documentary is fully complementary, as it's historical research on Caesar's life and accomplishments, very tightly written and produced, for history buffs like us. This is the new History channel.

Last one is really hard just based on reliability of sources but there's still a fun little drama with the last King who tried to use Etruria to retake Rome. From 509-493 the right to rule was essentially contested until the Republic won a decisive battle and then started to exercise hegemony over the Latins and try and thwart their rival Veii.

Very difficult figuring out exactly what kind of man Caesar was, perhaps evolving different ways over time... or with different motivations to different problems. He certainly showed different faults and strengths over time to differing problems. Finally how much is factual and how much legend? A great man for his time, but ultimately still just a man.

Do we have an episode before the civil war broke out? I think a full episode of Caesar rising to power from just a foot soldier in the Roman army is necessary to complete this. Once again a great documentary. Thank you Kings and Generals Team.

He was never a foot soldier. IIRC he started his career when he was kidnapped by pirates, promised to kill them all, and used his family money to hire mercenaries and personally hunt down those pirates.

Are we not going to talk about the absolute badassery that was Jubba and Petreius suicide pact? They didn't want to go down like cowards so they duel each other to the death?!?! That deserves a book by itself. That METAL AF, brothers! Man, history is so much better than fiction. This whole series needs to be a movie. I knew Caesar was amazing but he has to be in the top 5 generals in all human history.

This was very, very, very well done. I've read Caesar's _The Civil War_ (unlike David Drake - NOT - in the original Latin ...) so I'm familiar with the basic outline of the War but - the attention to detail for the individual battles here is phenomenal. The maps and their animated unit movements are superb. *_Bravo Zulu_* .

A few men are lucky and even fewer make their own luck. The amount of times Julius Caesar does things at the last moment or does the unthinkable and it works out fine blows my mind. Reinforcements just at the right time etc... It would ve so interesting to talk with the man. Even his view on how to get the job you want. I think any person would love to fight under him and for him. There is no Rome without Julius Caesar

The more I learn about Caesar, the more I come to realize that there is no better example of a man who was both a ruthless tyrant and a legendary commander. He was a great man in every sense of the word. The Pontic king knew he couldn't beat Caesar in any drawn out fight; the legions never thought Caesar would call their bluff.

Really good piece of research and well presented, it would be interesting to know how Caesar collected and held money or tributes, was it all in hard currency, was it carried with him in bags/boxes and was any of it ever deposited at the treasury in Rome?
Cristobal Valladares
Great job guys. How did Caesar win at ruspina. Surrounded and still winning. Any other commander would have despaired and fallen on his sword. Forget alesia. Ruspina in my humble opinion was Caesars greatest victory. To keep his cool. Wow, just my opinion. Twice with overwhelming cavalry advantage labienus could not seal the deal. Maybe labienus was overrated?
The production quality on this is insane. Absolutely amazing work!

What is so scary about this the end of this video is how modern everything sounds. The Roman Senate had devolved into an oligarchy and the common people were being shut out of the political sphere paving the way for someone like Caesar who was naturally despised after trying to enact land reform laws that were more favorable to the working class as well as for those who served in the wars (2000 year old versions of meritocracy and socialism ). Caesar was a very divisive figure during his time. The political stunt of crowing Caesar King is way to reminiscent of the running gag of naming Donald Trump King of America. I am no Trump fan by any means but the parallels going on in the USA and in other countries to this period in Roman history are quite hard to overlook.

13:30 I've heard a few different accounts of this now. K&G says the Library was only mildly damaged, but I've heard other lectures claiming that it was almost completely destroyed by the fire.

Could you imagine being a legionary in a foreign land like Egypt, with such history, such an old people. Find yourself caught up in a damn Civil War. And you're holding the line right next to the brilliant Lighthouse of Alexandria? Would be memorable, that's for sure. A story for the ages in the local Popina. What's a trip is I probably would have fought for the Republic. The 500 year old government. Not the egotistical imposter haha.

History isn't what happened - it's what people say happened. The fact there's still ongoing discussions and disagreements about Caesar's character proves this. I'm glad your series on Caesar offers multiple perspectives, making it as close to an unbiased account as humanly possible. Ironically, it was Caesar's assassins, not Caesar himself, who ended up putting the final nail in the republic's coffin and opening the way for the first true emperor.

Wonderful job K&G. It is almost impossible not to make comparisons to today's situation globally or remotely to the U.S empire and its own contemporary class anatogonisms. In any case, I wonder if Caesar's re-institution of the optimates was his worst mistake. How would his ardent supporters felt seeing the people they fought and sacrificed to overthrow return back to their elite status - untouched? Can one say that forgiving them encouraged them to conspire to reverse his reforms and ultimately killed him in cold blood? It eventually caused their ultimate demise under Augustus. Which then caused the descendants of the Caesarian faction to become the new aristocracy in their own right, then eventually causing the same antagonisms that ended the Roman world a few centuries later? Would these reforms have been more extensive or permanent if Caesar himself wasn't part of the optimate class? Who knows. Thank you for all of this content.

The optimates really had no business losing to Caesar. It's so frustrating watching them squander opportunity after opportunity. It seems Caesar won solely because he had the advantage absolute control over strategy, whereas the optimates were too fragmented.

​@Liberty Prime For sure, but significantly, there were several situations during the war, leading up to Munda, were it was basically game over for Caesar, had the enemy commander only had the prerogative to act decisively.

That is certainly a major factor, but so is the major gap in experience between the two sides. You have battles like Munda where Caesars men are both outnumbered and fighting uphill but still win due to sheer discipline.

The Germanic Coenus
32:53 My thoughts on the Ptolemaic army in 47 B.C. That fact that the Egyptians were able to push back the Pontic legionaries makes think that they were in fact armed like a phalanx in Macedonian fashion. The Macedonians of Philip V at Cynoscephalae did the same thing to the Romans. Like the Macedonians of Cynoscephalae, the downhill charge and steady impetus from the pikes of the Egyptian phalanx drove the legionaries back. Also, weren't the Ptolemies lacking in funds? Pike armies were far easier to raise and train therefore cheaper. Philip II of Macedon was able to do this within two years, despite the huge setbacks of his predecessor, raising an army of 10,000 Macedonian sarissa-armed hoplites to combat the Illyrian invaders. The fact that Ptolemy and his advisors/strategos were able to raise an army of 20,000 to 27,000 does say that these Egyptian natives (which were the bulk of his infantry while the Macedonian Kleruchoi or military settlers were cavalrymen) were in fact sarissa-armed hoplites.

@Lachlan Neal in comparisson to the the normal phalanx normal phalanx needed a lot of training the spartans were the best because they trained their whole life.The macedonian phalanx was easier to make needed less training and was an improvement but you still needed time if we gather today and make a macedonian phlanx we will be a joke without training.

IF Egyptians made up any significant part of the Ptolmaic army, they must have been REALLY desperate. Native Egyptians resented Greek rule and would overthrow the Greeks if they could. Odds are, there were some Egyptians there, but most of the army would have been Greek.

I could listen to the stories of Caesar again and again (and have). Still, his treatment of the tenth Legion is one of my favorites. First man goes to negotiate, and probably a bit surprised by his murder. The next negotiator, without prompting, is offered upwards of 500 heads as an apology. *I think of this event after listening to the new (mainstream) "theory" that there's no such thing as human nature. Really, then please explain this story. Only try not pretending 2k years is an argument.
