Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar

Pirates kidnapped Julius Caesar when he was 22 years old. His charisma led the pirates to treat him as a friend. He insisted they double his ransom, which they did. He said he would crucify them when free, and it was laughed off as a playful joke. Upon release, he raised a fleet, returned and crucified them.
