Vercingetorix, Caesar's Worst Nightmare | Part 1: Veni, Vidi, Vici
"I am a free man, of a free state"
When Julius Caesar became Governor of Gaul in 58BC he dreamt of fame, fortune and legacy.
Conquest had always been the path to glory for a Roman senator and with this position he hoped to make his name.
At first, he picked off the Gallic tribes one by one.
A bribe here, a massacre there, it seemed that soon all tribes would soon bow before the might of Rome.
But one King spurned all attempts at diplomacy. And soon, this tiny spark of rebellion would spread.
Under the banner of Vercingetorix, the tribes of Gaul would force Caesar and his legions out of their lands.
Or die trying.
This podcast tells the story of French hero 'Vercingetorix' against the backdrop of Caesar's invasion of Gaul.
