Mars

Julius Caesar should have listened to that old soothsayer who warned him to "beware the Ides of March." About the most hazardous time of the year during the reign of the Roman Empire was the month of March, named for Mars, the God of War and Retribution.

Since March was the month of one of Mars' festivals, sacrifices were made to him the whole month long. This had the tendency of whipping the population into violence and war frenzy whether it was called for or not.

March 14th, the famous Ides of March, turned out to be quite hazardous indeed for the ambitious Caesar. On that date in the year 44 B.C. he was assassinated by Brutus, Cassius, and other conspiratorial members of the Roman Senate because they believed he was getting too big for his britches. This poorly thought out deed plunged Rome into a horrible civil war, which, after lots of quarrel, spelled the end of the Roman Republic.

See what happens when Mars feels like flexing his muscles a bit?
