Abstract: Due to her origin, Iulia, the daughter of Iulius Caesar and the wife of Pompey the Great was one of the most important women of Republican Rome. Mentions about Iulia preserved in written records of ancient writers, including Cicero, clearly show that she did not stand out of women of her era. She was seen as an obedient daughter, a faithful devoted wife who did not engage herself in issues not fitting for Roman aristocrat. Although the feeling that Pompey had for his very young wife was emphasized, it did not seem to affect his decisions in a broader perspective. In later times, her image was depicted freely, among others because she did not play much of a role in the history of Rome. However, even as a fictional character, she did not play the main role, remaining rather a secondary character.
