History Nerd Facts: Caesarean section

Did you know the caesarean section is named after Gaius Iulius Caesar (yup, that one Roman guy who conquered Britain) because the legends say that he was born with the help of a caesarean section? I say legends because caesarean sections were deadly for the mother up until the Modern Era and Caesar's mother survived his birth. 

Another random fact about Caesar: He was killed on the Ides of March 44 BC which is the 15th of March. That's my birthday! 
Here is a picture of his death. As terrible as it sounds: I quite like it!


Have a great day,

The Countess
