    Julius was his father
    Adopted father. Technically Octavian was Julius Caesars nephew by his elder sister but Caesar adopted him posthumously in his will after he was assassinated much to the complete consternation of Marcus Antonius who was, not without reason, expecting to be Caesars heir.

    Here's the shit kicker Desh....Octavian was only 19 years old when he took the political mantle of Caesars heir. In many respects he was a greater political genius (and Caesar must have been aware of his talent for politics) than Julius Caesar was, though not a universal genius like Caesar who was incredibly gifted at everything he put his hand too. Octavian was certainly not a great general but his political skill exceeded his legendary Uncle and probably the best evidence of that is that he died in bed of old age. Few Roman Emperors ever did that.

    Biography:

    Grind is one of the internets most beloved and influential political thinkers and deep-level theorists in the modern era. He rose to prominence in early 2015 when he alleged, contrary to the dominant theory of christiefanism of the time, that Bill Clintons wife was indeed running for president and wasn't considering settling down to be a grandmother. In 2016, Grind was one of the key figures in proposing the new revolutionary theory of "30% is not a rare occurrence" which shook up the JPP political landscape like no other theory ever had before. His academic prowess, deep-level analysis and remarkable insight into human nature and psychology will undoubtedly result in further complexities being untangled and laid bare. He currently resides in boston, his hobbies include #rekking libs, vaping, and patriotism. You can find him in a thread near you.

    It's not that complex. The Republic had evolved to govern a city State and collapsed from the strain of governing a world wide empire for which a Republic designed to govern a small City State was not competent at.
