With the Republic rebuilding after the wreckage caused by Marius and Sulla, a new cast of political characters was taking power in Rome. Julius Caesar, Pompey, Crassus, Cicero, Cato, and others are all legends of history for good reason. The interplay between these men and their competing ambitions combined with the long term structural issues that had plagued the Republic since the beginning to create the conditions for one last Civil War that would put the dying Republic out of it's misery. 

This is Part V in a series on the downfall of the Roman Republic. It focuses on the rise of some of the key political figures in the late stages of the Roman Republic and how violence and cynical political norms were now integrated into the Roman system.
