Celebrity's Relative
    (75 BC- BC)
    Born in Rome, Italy
    Sometimes identified as Calpurnia Pisonis
    Third and final wife of Julius Caesar (m. 59 BC)
    Daughter of consul Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus (58 BC)
    Sister of consul Lucius Calpurnius Piso (15 BC)
    Widowed on the Ides of March, when her husband was assassinated by a group of rebellious senators led by Marcus Junius Brutus (Mar. 15, 44 BC)
    Portrayed by Greer Garson in Joseph L. Mankiewicz's 'Julius Caesar,' opposite Marlon Brando (1953)
    She was most likely a political pawn married off for favors by her Senator father.
    Little is known about her personal life, what she did after her husband's death, or even her date of death.
    Her husband cheated on her (and might have conceived) with Cleopatra.
    She bore no children with her husband during their 15-year union.
    She married Julius Caesar at the age of 16, despite a 20 year age difference.
    The age difference was so wide that she was apparently older than her own stepdaughter.
    It is probably just an ancient urban legend that she predicted her husband's impending doom and tried to warn him, inspiring similar legends like the Mary Todd/Jackie O 'coincidence.'
    She never remarried after her husband's death.
    She was described as a humble woman and 'often shy.'
    She gets some of the best lines in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar tragedy.
    She patiently tolerated her husband cheating on her left, right, and sideways.
    She allegedly had a premonition about her husband's murder and tried in vain to warn him from going to the forum.
    She delivered all of her late husband's personal papers, his will, notes, and possessions to Mark Antony.
    For some reason, Harper Lee made her the namesake of the Finches' black family maid in 'To Kill a Mockingbird'...
    She is unfairly portrayed as a bitter 'stick in the mud' in both Cecil B. DeMille's 1934 epic and Liz Taylor's god awful 'Cleopatra' film.
