Which William Shakespeare play includes the line, “Beware the ides of March”?
Answer: March 15 is referred to as the “Ides of March.” “Beware the Ides of March” is a famous line from the William Shakespeare play “Julius Caesar”. In 44 BC,
it became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar. According to Plutarch, a seer had warned that harm would come to Caesar no later than the Ides of March. This meeting is famously dramatized in Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar, when Caesar
is warned by the soothsayer to “beware the Ides of March.” The phrase has lasted through history and is still used today to signify a particularly ominous day.
Gaius Julius Caesar, usually called Julius Caesar, was a Roman politician and general who played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman
Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire.
