Marriage to Julia
- +2 public order
Caesar’s alliance with Pompey came about through political expediency. In exchange for his Consulship in 59BC, Caesar agreed to pass Pompey’s land requests for his veterans and confirm the various political settlements he’d orchestrated in Asia. At the same time, Caesar managed to bring both Pompey and Crassus, previously political opponents, together to form what would become known as the First Triumvirate. This political alliance was further strengthened by the marriage of Pompey and Julia, Caesar’s daughter from his first marriage, Cornelia Cinna. Their marriage, and the close bond it represented between their ambitious families, did much to alarm their opponents, such as Cato and Cicero.
