The Assassination of Julius Caesar: The Bodyguard Paradox

In 44BCE Julius Caesar faced a dilemma: keep his bodyguard and draw hostility, or disband them while risking assassination. On the Ides of March, 44BCE, Julius Caesar lay dying on the Senate floor, more than 20 stab wounds sustained to his body. Those wounds inflicted by the most venerated fathers of the state, the senators who included amongst their conspiracy close personal friends, colleagues, and allies of Caesar.
