Julius Caesar was one of the greatest statesmen ever. After his brilliant conquest of Gaul his loyal army was willing to follow him on campaigns in Egypt, Pontus, Africa and Spain which made him master of the Roman world.
Granting himself dictatorial powers as the first de facto emperor he passed a flood of shrewd, sane measures which improved life for many at home and abroad. His Julian calendar survives to this day.
