15th March...Idus Martiae: Festum Annae Perennae, Attis...

On this day in 44 BC, Julius Caesar was assassinated by the Senate. He had appointed his great-nephew, Octavian, as his heir. Civil war broke out between Caesar's assassins and his successors (Mark Antony and Octavian).

A dark day for Romans.....
