Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, otherwise known as “Caligula”, was a Roman Emperor from 37-41 A.D.
Caligula was considered a harsh and perverted leader. Subsequently, Caligula was the recipient of many failed conspiracies to “dethrone” or kill him. At the age of 28 Caligula finally met his fate having been assassinated by three men under the guidance of the Praetorian Guard led by Cassius Chaerea, the Senate, army, and equestrian order.
The night before his murder, Caligula relayed a dream in which he saw himself standing before the throne of Jupiter. This planet was held in high esteem by Romans in terms of religious value. Jupiter (or Jove) was seen as king of all the Gods. In the dream Caligula observed himself being rejected by Jove via this God kicking him down to Earth. This was seen as a premonition of his death.
