Julius Caesar wanted to run as consul around 59 BC. Even though corruption and bribery by his opponents, he still won. He made connections with Cassius and Pompey. The two leaders had been at it for quite some time. So, Caesar went in and tried to reconcile them. Thus, after the truce, they were recognized as the First Triumvirate or the rule of three men. The headship was made formal through the marriage of Caesar to Pompey’s daughter named Julia.

But Caesar was still in debt. So he had his eyes on Gaul. He combined two legions and defeated the tribes bordering the south. He found out the some of the Germanic tribes are preparing for an event. He treated this as a form of aggression. He conquered the tribes and the north was secured.
