“Et tu Brutus!”

“Et tu Brutus!”

Thus cried Julius Caesar, the Roman emperor cum tyrant, when stabbed to death in the Roman Senate. The date was 15th of March – the Ides of March, 44 BCE.

And you Brutus! You who were like a son to me? You of whom I would have never expected such a thing?

But then Brutus must have had an oedipian streak in him.

Don’t we all?
