The Julian calendar is a calendar. Julius Caesar, the leader of Ancient Rome, invented that calendar. It is a reform of the Roman calendar. It was first used in 45 BC. Caesar consulted the astronomer Sosigenes of Alexandria. Very probably it was made to approximate the tropical year.

Calendar system[change | change source]

The Julian calendar has two types of year: the common year and the leap year. The common year has 365 days and the leap year has 366 days. The leap year comes after 4 common years. If a year is divisible by 4, it is a leap year, similar to our present calendar.

Year system[change | change source]

From 45 BC to AD 525, the Julian calendar used Ab urbe condita (AUC) year system. Since AD 525, it uses Anno Domini (AD) year system.
