Known as Pompey the Great, this Politician and military leader of the Roman Republic served as Consul from 55 to 54 BC and again from 52 to 51 BC. An ally of Julius Caesar and Marcus Licinius Crassus, he was a member of the powerful First Triumvirate.
Though Crassus orchestrated the defeat of Spartacus in the Third Servile War, Pompey claimed the victory for himself because he subdued the last several thousand of Spartacus' troops.
He was married to Antistia until 82 BC; to Aemilia Scaura from 82 until 79 BC; to Mucia Tertia from 79 to 61 BC; and to Julius Caesar's daughter Julia from 59 to 54 BC. His final marriage, to Cornelia Metella, began in 52 BC and ended with his death four years later.
Actor Joel Tobeck portrays Pompey in the 2013 television series Spartacus: War of the Damned.
