Evaluation on Marcus BrutusMarcus Brutus was in charge of the assassination. Ironically he was a servant and a very close friend to Julius Caesar. Brutus had a very close relationship with Caesar. Except for that he had a closer relationship with Rome and its people. He loved Caesar a lot. Which meant he was a very close friend, but Brutus was very scared of Caesar. He didn't want Rome to have a king, and he felt that Caesar was coming to the point where he would accept the crown.

Brutus had a very important role in the conspiracy against Caesar. He was the backbone of the plan. According to Cassius, Brutus's main purpose in the conspiracy is for and insurance policy. The people will think, since Brutus was noble to Caesar that there was a good reason for Caesar's assassination. Brutus will also be the leader of the conspiracy for another insured way to stay innocent in the assassination.

Cassius was the one to declare Brutus the leader of the conspiracy. This was another way to show that this assassination would be right. Brutus still loved Caesar very much, but he said "not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more." Marcus Brutus was a good friend to Julius, but not good enough. He had moral values dealing with Rome and its people. Brutus' values then mad him join a conspiracy against Caesar put together by jealous and unrightfully citizens. Brutus joined only because he didn't want to see Caesar turn his back on Rome. Brutus was the one that brought tragedy into this play.
