    ..In Act I of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Marcus Brutus deals with an internal conflict regarding the title character. Brutus is torn between his friendship with Caesar and his love for Rome. He recognizes Caesar's ambition, suspecting that Caesar wants to be named king of Rome. Given Caesar's ruthlessness, Brutus knows that if he becomes king, Rome will suffer. Brutus and Caesar have fought side by side in battle, and on a personal level, he admires Caesar as a friend. Brutus' allegiance to his country wins out over friendship, and he joins the conspiracy to assassinate Caesar. An appreciation for Brutus' loyalty to his country makes it easier for the reader to agree with Mark Antony's comment that Brutus "was the noblest Roman of them all".
