English: Julius Caesar Short Answers
1. I believe Brutus was honorable but was misled by those around him. In all the events leading up to Caesar’s death he did not once think about personal gain only that Caesar could be evil. Even after Caesar’s death he still believed he had done right. Another thing I think shows he was honorable is that when he decided to die rather than be captured he went the honorable way.

All these in my opinion point to a good leader. Although he is not perfect out of the options he is the best they have.
