Julius Caesar had changed the nature of the Roman empire, he had swept away the old, corrupt system of the late Roman republic and had set an example to future Roman emperors as well as other future European leaders to live up to. After his death, Mark Antony had taken control of the empire by giving an emotional speech that that won over Rome's citizens, later on a political alliance was formed with Octavion and Mark Antony, The political situation in Rome compelled Antony to return to Italy where he was forced to conclude a temporary settlement with Octavian, part of which was that he married Octavian's sister, Octavia.
