An audacious and decisive general, his victories over the Gauls allowed him to challenge for the political leadership of Rome. Leading a single legion across the Rubicon in 49 BC, Caesar launched a civil war that would signal the end of the Roman Republic and usher in the Roman Empire under his adopted son, Octavian.
