Great Answer

Here is what we found:

This source is particularly interesting, as it is an account of Caesar’s murder from his Biographer,¬†Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus. From this source:

On 15 March 44 BCE, the Roman dictator Julius Caesar was murdered. There are several accounts of this incident, but the most famous and probably most accurate is the one written by Caesar’s biographer Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus (c.70-c.135), who seems to have had access to imperial archives and may have consulted eyewitness accounts.
