The Ides of March, March 15, was an important pagan holiday in ancient times and marked the date in 44 B.C. when several Roman Senators, under the leadership of Gaius Cassius, Marcus Albinus, and Marcus Brutus, conspired to take the life of Julius Caesar near the Theater of Pompey. Romans had suffered through a Civil War which had ended only four years earlier. The murder of Caesar resulted in lengthy military action which ultimately resulted in the Battle of Actium at which Caesar’s nephew Octavius consolidated his power in 31 B.C. and ultimately became the Emperor in 27 B.C.
Caesar’s death resulted from treachery either of Caesar or of his conspirators, depending upon one’s perspective.
