Julius Caesar was the dictator of Rome and he aspired to be the Emperor. The senate soon started to separate and while most loved Caesar, other members plotted to kill him. Caesar was also loved by the many people of Rome. Caesar was a classical tragic hero because he is a good man, but not perfect, had tragic flaws, and made choices which lead clearly to his downfall.
Caesar was a tragic hero for many reasons.

Caesar is of high social and political status. Caesar was the dictator for life of Rome. Caesar was said by Brutus to be ambitious, which led directly to his downfall - "But as he was ambitious, I slew him." (Act 3. Scene 2. Line 28). Caesar was also a good person. This is evident when Antony reads Caesars will, and states that Caesar left all the people of Rome money and land. Caesar also listened to the people, "When the poor cried; Caesar wept".
Caesar was also warned many times buy various people before he was killed. The Soothsayer has an insight of trouble for Julius Caesar and he warns him - "Beware the Ides of March." (Act 1. Scene 2. Line 21). On March 15, the date that Caesar was warned of, his wife, Calphurnia had a bad dream. Calphurnia cried out in her sleep "Help ho, they murder Caesar!" (Act 2. Scene 2. Line 3.) .
Calphurnia knew that her dream was a sign of what was to come. The Priests found that there were no organs in the animals and there was a lion giving birth in the streets. Soon there was a thunder and lightning storm and there was raining fire, all showing signs of what was about to happen. After.
