Massacre of the Usipetes and Tenchterhi[edit]

So why exactly isn't Caesar's massacre of the women and children of the Usipetes and Tenchterhi mentioned here and our article on the Gallic Wars? This is a whole lot harder to ignore with all the media coverage of this massacre in various media outlets (for example [1], [2]–the latter referring to the event as "genocidal").

We should be vary wary of this sort of exclusion. It's unfortunately typical of Wikipedia's coverage of figures important in Western history, for example, until fairly recently there was no mention of the particularly nasty elements of Charlemagne's (massacre, religious warfare) and Hernando de Soto's legacies on their respective articles (actually, the de Soto article still seems to have been written by a tourism agency). :bloodofox: (talk) 23:51, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

well it actually depends on which place you are from. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:29, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

"In 48 BC, Caesar was given permanent tribunician powers"[edit]

I was unable to find this claim on the given source page (Abbot, page 135:;view=1up;seq=139), nor in the adjacent pages, nor in the section that later deal with 48 BC. Please correct me if I'm wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Skoskav~enwiki (talkcontribs) 13:51, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

According to Christian Meier in his biography of Caesar, Caesar was merely granted the honor of sitting at the bench in which the Tribunes sat at "in order to document his special relations with the plebs, and its representatives." Chapter 13, section titled "The Campaign in the East", 4th paragraph. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yahvuh (talkcontribs) 03:18, 1 May 2017 (UTC)


I can't figure out how to change this - the article summary right under the page name has some nonsense in Spanish that looks like vandalism. Helikophis (talk) Helikophis (talk) 18:47, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
