Killing Caesar. The words addressed to Brutus is just one of many invented phrases (or manipulated) of history?

also you, Brute, I wires”? or “You too, Stupid, my son?” is one of the most famous phrases in history, we came away from that 15 March 44 a.C., when it was uttered by a dying Julius Caesar realizing that among the conspirators who were murdering there was also Stupid, his beloved adopted son (a natural, the issue is controversial).

The conditional is necessary because, despite the secular fame whose expression enjoys, its veracity is far from certain.

The first concern relates to the failure to mention the above phrase from the Latin Svetonio and greek Plutarch, the first historians to narrate and describe in considerable detail the Caesar's death, according to which the dictator, before collapsing to the ground, He said nothing; only Suetonius adds that “according to some“, therefore according to unverified rumors, he, having seen Brutus among the conspirators, the would have turned with amaraggiato tone telling: “you too, son“?

This means that if we are definitely not in the presence of a false history, the probability that the phrase attributed to Caesar is an invention posthumous hypothesis is relatively reliable.

Then there is someone, a small minority of scholars actually, that dares a fascinating theory, but to be verified and that is that the dictator has addressed his last words to his son not, mA Decimus Brutus Albinus, his dear friend (Photo gives: telefree.it).
