The Ides Of March

Have you heard of the Ides of March?? In ancient Rome, the Ides of March were equivalent to our March 15th. Most of us that have heard of the Ides of March have most likely heard of William Shakespeare. It was William Shakespeare who wrote the play Julius Caesar. In the play a soothsayer or what most of know as a fortune teller tries to make Caesar aware that he should Beware of the Ides of March. 

Reality and the play alike finds Julius Caesar assassinated on the ides of March in the year 44 B.C. The word Ides is a Latin word which means to divide and were originally meant to mark the full moon. The calendar months and lunar months do not travel together so the Ides were often out of step. Remembering the Ides of March also commemorates the day of Julius Caesar 2,060 years ago. On this day Julius Caesar was stabbed in the back, front, side, top and everywhere. The stabbing of Julius Caesar was made famous by William Shakespeare.
