Gaius Julius Caesar July 12 or July 13 100 BC - March 15, 44 BC, was a Roman military and political leader and one of the most influential men in world hisotry. He played a critical role in the transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire.
Caesar was a military genius and his conquest of Gaul extended the Roman world all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. He made two military expeditions to Britain but withdrew each time. In 55 BC he landed with two legions in Kent but quickly returned to Gaul (France). In 54 BC he again landed, this time with five legions and 2000 calvary, and succeeded in crossing the Thames before withdrawing.
