Lucius Julius Caesar (consul 90 BC)
During his consulship, he defeated the Samnites. Lucius proposed legislation (one of the Leges Juliae or "Julian laws") granting Roman citizenship to allies who didn’t participate in the Social War against Rome in 90 BC. Later he became censor and due to the success of the Julian Law, became responsible for dividing new citizens into voting districts. His colleague in this was a former consul, Publius Licinius Crassus Dives (consul 97 BC) (father of triumvir, Marcus Licinius Crassus).
Lucius and his brother, Gaius Julius Caesar Strabo Vopiscus, were killed together in 87 BC at the beginning of the Civil War by partisans of Gaius Marius. They died fighting in the streets. According to Livy, their heads were exposed on the speaker’s platform.
