\Studyworld\ Studyworld Studynotes \ Julius Caesar:
Did You Know

The term "Caesar" became synonymous with the title of king after Julius Caesar for the Romans. In this play, Octavius is often called "Caesar" because he inherited the name in addition to the title. Octavius went on to become the first emperor of the Roman Empire, yet all of the emperors that succeeded Octavius were still called "Caesar." The German title for supreme ruler, "Kaiser," comes from "Caesar."

Clocks, doublets, and sleeves were not invented yet by 44 B.C., the year the play begins, yet the characters sometimes wear Elizabethan doublets instead of Roman togas and shirts with sleeves and they tell time using clocks. The clock was a medieval invention, and the doublet and sleeve were invented after that. Such historical impossibilities in fiction are called anachronisms.
