In Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare many of the characters support some sort of a leadership quality. Caesar himself was a great military leader Cassius and Brutus both were very influential public leaders, in Rome, and were the leaders of Caesar’s assassination.

In this play I believe Julius Caesar had the greatest leadership amongst all the characters. He had leadership qualities that were positive and negative towards Roman society.

He was a great military leader. Conquering lands for the Roman Empire, the Roman people worshipped the ground he walked upon. Caesar was a fascinating public speaker and a very intelligent man. The people loved him so much because of his people skills and public speaking skills.

In the contrary, he was very ambitious and Brutus, Cassius, and many others were frightened that he would become to powerful. Becoming powerful, Caesar could have become the dictator or king. Had he become the ruler the whole of the Roman Republic would have collapsed because it was based on everyone getting a say in government. Had he not been too ambitious he would probably not have been murdered.
