March 15th is commonly called the Ides of March. On this day the commemoration of the assassination of Julius Caesar is remembered. In what is one of the most well known betrayals of all when Julius asks Brutus why he was in on the assassination, we read it well in William Shakespeares Julius Caesar.

Following in the events that lead up to the assassination of Julius Caesar by his own council we follow a conflicted Brutus as he contemplates what he is asked to do. Julius in the meantime has become more powerful with the senators worrying about the power going to his head. As history would tell, Brutus joins with the senators as he decides to join them in the murder of the emperor. In the end, Julius Caesar is murdered with Brutus feeling guilty for the part of killing his friend.
