Bettany Hughes explores the day in 49BC when, defying the Senate, Julius Caesar and his army crossed the river Rubicon, plunging the Republic into civil war. She also examines Caesar's character and how his quest for absolute power effectively sounded the death knell for the Roman Republic and paved the way for dictatorial rule.
