Daughter of Caesar and Cornēlia, b. c.73 bc, was married in 59 to Pompey; their mutual affection bound Pompey more strongly to her father Caesar. In 55 the sight of Pompey returning from the comitia spattered with blood allegedly caused a miscarriage; and next year she died in childbirth, the child dying a few days later. On the people's insistence, she was buried in the Campus Martius, and in 46 Caesar held magnificent shows near her tomb.
