Following the disturbances of 54-53BC, when tribes such as the Euburones and Nervii attacked the Legions in their winter quarters, the widespread rebellion of Gallic tribes under Vercingetorix in 52 BC found Caesar and his Legates hard pressed and in need of additional troops. Without the sanction of the Senate, Pompey ‘loaned’ him one of his. It was a move that shocked their political opponents, such as Cato and the Optimates. Once the Gallic uprising had been crushed, and perhaps to allay their protests and fears, Caesar obeyed the Senate’s demands to return this ‘borrowed’ Legion.
