Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
Politician
    (September 29, 106 BC-September 29, 48 BC)
    Birth name Gnaeus Pompeius
    Gained the title of Magnus (or 'the Great') after successfully waging war in Africa (81 B.C.)
    Achieved victory in the Servile War instigated by the slave Spartacus (71 B.C)
    Hunted down and destroyed hundreds of privateers disrupting Roman commerce in the Mediterranean Sea (67 B.C.)
    Captured the Kingdom of Judea for Rome (63 B.C.)
    Formed the First Triumvirate with Julius Caesar and Crassus (60 B.C.)
    After he formed the First Triumvirate with Julius Caesar and Crassus, they practically took over the Roman government and forced all who resisted into exile.
    As soon as he started seeing Caesar behave more and more like an emperor, he joined others in rebellion.
    He tried to stop Caesar from gaining complete control with the remaining armies of the senate, but was defeated at the Battle of Pharsalus.
    His failure to defeat Caesar lead to Caesar's complete control of the Roman government.
    After the battle, he escaped to Egypt, but was murdered by Egyptian royalty as a means of sucking up to Caesar.
    What kind of name is Pompey?
    Caesar was about to pardon him of his crimes before he was murdered.
    He was admired by his fellow politicians.
    He was very quiet and kept to himself, and would rather wage a war campaign in the name of Rome than sit around in the senate talking.
    When Julius Caesar was assassinated in the Roman Forum by a bunch of scheming politicians on the infamous Ides of March, his bloodied body fell at the foot of Pompey's giant statue. (how's that for poetic justice?)
