Excerpt from passage

Ancient Rome was the birthplace of Gaius Julius Caesar. Caesar was one of the most important and famous people of the Ancient Roman era. Julius was born on July 12 or 13 in the year 100 B.C. Gaius was the name of Julius' father. Caesar's family was considered nobility though Julius' father was not an important Roman official.

In Rome, at that time of Julius' birth people, were broken up into two classes. You could be nobility or a commoner. However, you could not choose which you would become. You were born into it or you would marry into it. While the Caesar family was nobility the group that made them nobility, the Patrician class, was not considered popular at the time. The Caesar family was actually quite unpopular. They were not wealthy as well, which caused them to have to live a less than lavish lifestyle. In fact, Julius Caesar lived with his family in an apartment house in a poor section of Rome.

At the age of ten years old, Julius' aunt, Julia married a man that would take the Caesar's out of poverty thanks to his wealth. Gaius Marius was a very important politician and general. Around the age of 16 Julius' father died. This was during the Roman civil war. At this time, Julius made it quite clear where his loyalty was when he married a woman named Cornelia.
