The Tragedy of Gaius Gracchus

In the early days of the Roman republic, long before the empire or the Caesars who ruled it, there were two classes at war: the poor plebeians who voted on who would rule them, and the wealthy patricians who ruled. Out of this unjust division of power rose the plebeian family, the Gracchi who, though prospering through marriage, never forgot their origins.

Now this night the younger brother Gaius, returns to Rome after a long absence from the scene of so much sadness.
