Julius Caesar and his Gladius Julius Caesar had the personality to win over anyone to his way of thinking. He was a true leader, in that he led from the front, often at the head of his army as they went into battle. Nothing seemed to deter him in his single mindedness and push for success. It is said he had a method of inspiring his troops to give their all in any situation. As Rome fought against the Iberian Celts and their iron weapons, they gained so much respect for their short swords that they adopted the design as their own. The sword that eventually conquered most of the then-known world evolved from the Gladius Hispanicus - Spanish sword. Originally a stabbing weapon, the Gladius quickly became a cut-and-thrust sword, with a long sharp point and double edged blade - arguably the most recognizable and elegant of Roman sword types.
