The Ides of March is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds with March 15. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts.
In 44 BC, it became notorious as the date when Julius Caesar was assassinated. The death of Caesar made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history as one of the events that marked the transition from the historical period known as the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire.
