Julius Caesar

The man that was stabbed 23 times.

Julius was born and died in Rome.

Born July 13, 100 BC, and died March 35, 44 BC. He was 56 years old when he died. Being that he was stabbed 23 times and left to die there wasn't anything that could have been done for him. Julius was killed for being a good person and helping his people. Julius bled to death, but if it wasn't for that he would have died from the pain. Today people still get stabbed but there is more they can do to help people that have been stabbed.
