Corrected entry: Until the time of the Christian dominance of Rome, the Romans cremated their dead. There is no historical record that Caesar and Pompey buried their wives as depicted in the miniseries.


Correction: Actually, cremation was the preferred "burial" method, but burials (inhumation) did happen. After the 3rd century, burials became the preferred method. And since there is no historical documentation, the screenwriters are granted some artistic leeway. http://library.thinkquest.org/26602/ceremonies.htm.


Aurelia: If you marry Cinna's daughter you will be identified with the popular party whether you wish or not.
Caesar: I wish it.
Aurelia: They are not our people.
Cousin: You wish to join with farmers and hagglers and beggars?
Caesar: Our family itself did not exactly drop straight out of Jupiter's ass.

Trivia: Julius Caesar was married three times, not twice. His second wife (whom he divorced because of her alleged involvement in a religious scandal) was never mentioned in the miniseries.
