Julius Caesar, Roman general and statesman, 1st century BC (1882-1884)

Julius Caesar, Roman general and statesman, 1st century BC (1882-1884). Julius Caesar (c100-44 BC) was one of Rome's most capable generals, as demonstrated by his conquest of Gaul in the 50s BC. After becoming embroiled in the civil strife that accompanied the disintegration of the Roman Republic, in 48 BC he crossed the River Rubicon, took Rome and effectively became the first citizen. His presumed desire to abandon the Republic as a form of government and return to monarchy led to his assassination in the Roman Senate in 44 BC. After a painting on enamel. A print from La France et les Francais a Travers les Siecle, Volume I, F Roy editor, Saint-Antoine, 1882-1884

Hernan Cortes, 16th century Spanish conquistador, (1836).Artist: W Holl

Hernan Cortes, 16th century Spanish conquistador, (1836). Landing in Mexico in 1519, with a force of only some 600 men, Cortes (1485-1547) succeeded in overthrowing the empire of the Aztecs, a civilization numbering 5 million. He was able to achieve this partly due to the natives being terrified of the Europeans horses and firearms, neither of which they had seen before. In addition, the Aztecs believed a prophecy that they would be visited by a light-skinned bearded god, the Quetzalcoatl, who had taught them agriculture and government in the past, and whose return they were to welcome with great ceremony. Cortes was able to exploit his resemblance to the Quetzalcoatl to great effect
