Author: Santiago Posteguillo.
If ever there was a man born to change the course of history, it was Julius Caesar. His legend, twenty centuries later, is still more alive than ever. Roma soy yo is the story of the extraordinary events that marked Caesar’s destiny.
Masterfully combining exhaustive historical rigour and an extraordinary narrative capacity, Santiago Posteguillo manages to immerse the reader in the heat of the battles, to make him walk through the most dangerous streets while the senators’ hired killers lurk around every corner, to live the great love story of Julius Caesar with Cornelia, his first wife, and to understand, in short, what the origins of the man behind the myth were like.
Rome, 77 BC. The cruel senator Dolabela is to be tried for corruption, but he has hired the best lawyers, bought off the jury and is known to use violence against all those who oppose him. No one dares to be the prosecutor, until suddenly, against all odds, a young patrician in his early twenties agrees to prosecute, to defend the people of Rome and to challenge the power of the elites. The name of the unknown lawyer is Gaius Julius Caesar.
