Ides of March
The Ides of March (Latin: Idus Martiae, Late Latin: Idus Martii) was a day in the Roman calendar. It means 15 March in Julian calendar. Several religious observances marked it as a deadline for settling debts. In 44 BC, it was well known as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar which made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history.
