i have to do a news article on gaius (caligula) caesar about a big event that happened towards the end of his life. does anyone know a big event that happened towards the end of his life? all i can really find is when he was assassinated and that wont work.
Caligula lived from 12 to 41 A.D. This timeline lists some major events in that time period. Note that this source uses C.E. instead of A.D.
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum.
1. (see the last paragraph): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caligula
2. (again look at several paragraph toward the end): http://www.roman-empire.net/emperors/caligula.html
NOTE: You discovered he was killed, but you need to see WHY.
He was killed both because he was cruel but also because of his vice. The 1979 movie is good if you can see it.
