Julius Caesar looked towards the port of Alexandria. His red robe hung from his neck like a forgotten cape, occasionally fluttering in the winds from the Enipius River. It has been a year since the Roman Civil War had started. On 10th of January last year, it was him who crossed the Rubicon river, the boundary between the Cisalpine Gaul province to the north and Italy proper to the south, a legally prescribed action forbidden to any army-leading general. That was when it all began. And now, after more than a year, he was still struggling to stop this war.
But it's not about that anymore.
At first, Julius thought that he would be the hero of the Romans and began his triumphal progress. But the problem occurred when the Roman Senate started supporting Pompey or Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus, as he was known in Rome.
