A Tourist in Rome - Pompey

Birth:September 29, 106 BC
Death:September 28, 48 BC (murder)

Pompey the Great was a great general of the Roman army, just before Julius Caesar's rise to power, and he also became a political leader. He entered into a political coalition named the First Triumvirate with Julius Caesar and Marcus Licinius Crassus, which subsequently broke up during a civil war between Pompey and Caesar. When Pompey fled to Egypt to regroup, he was murdered by the Egyptians who feared Caesar more than him.
