Caesar

(5,998 words)

Author(s): Will, Wolfgang (Bonn) | Rüpke, Jörg (Erfurt)
I. Historical [German version] A. Youth and early career C. Iulius Caesar was born in 100 BC on the 13th of Quintilis (from 44 BC: Iulius/July); his mother was Aurelia, a daughter of L. Aurelius Cotta ( cos. 119 BC; [1. 327]). His father became praetor in 92 BC, and died 85 BC. Nothing is known of C.'s childhood and early youth. As it was the custom for the Roman aristocracy, C., too, presumably spent his first years in the care of his mother, followed between the ages of 7 and 15 by elementary schooling and grammatical tuition (Greek and Latin literature, basic rhetorics). His private tutor was M. Antonius Gnipho, a freedman who had received rhetorical training in Alexandria. In 84 BC, C. was designated for the office of flamen Dialis and, as a nephew of Marius, he was married to Cornelia, the daughter of Cinna. His daughter Iulia, his only child from a legitimate marriage and later to become the wife of  Pompeius, was born in 83 BC (or 76 [2. 19]).  Sulla's victory in Nov. 82 BC endangered the career, but not the life of the young C. Sulla allegedly demanded that he divorce Cornelia, but C. refused and left Rome. In 80 BC, he entered as an officer the service of the governor of Asia, M. Minucius Thermus, a dedicated follower o…
