How Did Julius Caesar Die?
- Saturday, April 10, 2004
It's a little known fact that Julius Caesar did NOT die from stab wounds by Brutus ... but rather he was poisoned.
At the huge banquet on that fateful Ides of March, Brutus slipped some
poisonous hemlock leaves onto Julius's salad. (This was the world's first Caesar's salad!)
When Julius slumped over into his salad, Brutus feigned concern and asked: "My dear friend Julius, how many hemlock leaves have you eaten?"
To which Julius gasped in reply: . . . "Ate two, Brutus."
