    Should be Julius vs Alexander

  • MeicalCreigiau

    It is not the same Caesar the one that was inspired by Shakespeare play and the first roman emperor (nor the one that used to sleep with Cleopatra)

    Ceasar would OBLITERATE Shaka. There really is no realistic way the Zulu would win against a full Roman army led by Ceasar. Zuku technology was laughable vs Roman tech, no long range weapons, limited archery, no armor, hide shields. Versus full body hardened leather, chainmail for noncommisioned officers, full steel breastplate for officers, steel helmets on every soldier, hardened wood shields with iron furniture and leather covers. Pilum and gladius vs asagai spears. Pilum were DESIGNED for removing the shield from enemies, which the Zulu relied on fighting with. The Zulu faired well against unprofessional warrior cultures on the south African savanna, and won a very few battles - using mass casualty human wave attacks until ammunition was exhausted- against modern armies, but were eventually annihilated. The Roman's - and especially Ceasar - knew exactly how to deal with pincer moves like Shaka employed, and regularly defeated them. It's just not a contest at all. Ceasar annihilates the Zulu en masse, first engagement.

    I am probably very very late with this realization, but the line "If I wanted to shake spears, I'd waggle my biography" refers to the play "Julius Caesar" by William Shakespeare.... another genius line from ERB

    For people who think Caesar's last line is racist: the romans did make everyone their slaves. This line is also genius because after his momma died, shaka went totally nuts, he banned growing wheat. Pretty ironic though that shaka roasts ceasar for being killed by "friends" while he got killed by his brothers

    1:23 Caesar: "First my first line will drop back and spank you in the chest" Shaka: Wow bro chill

    Two very good tactical commanders. Shaka was strong but I have to give it to Caesar. He was cold, disciplined. calculating and insidious. If I wanted to Shakespeares I’d waggle my biography lol.

    For those of you who are wondering if Egypt defeated Rome,your wrong. Julia’s Ceaser actually was very close with Cleopatra and they had a kid.

    Regardless if a real battle ever occured in between 2 generals Caesar would win within hours just by sheer technology.
