The conspiracy against Caesar encompassed as many as 60 noblemen, including Caesar's own protege, Marcus Brutus. A seer had forecast that Caesar would be harmed no later than the "Ides (midpoint) of March." A meeting between Caesar and the seer was famously dramatized in William Shakespeare's play "Julius Caesar," when Caesar is warned by the soothsayer to "beware the Ides of March."
