Masters of Rome
from Marius to Caesar
About the site


There are three timelines covering the events of the period:

  • Politics - major domestic events and laws passed
  • Foreign affairs - events outside Rome, conflicts and the timespan of each major war of the period
  • Family life - major births, marriages and deaths

All timelines shows the consuls for each year, and the timespan of each book.

The timelines begin in 121 BC which is some time before the start of the first book. This date has been chosen because it is the year that Gaius Gracchus was killed, setting the scene for the later political struggles and the Italian War. This date ensures that the timeline covers the events leading up to the Jugurthan and Cimbric wars, and also events in the life of Mithridates.
