Jacques-Louis David (30 August 1748 – 29 December 1825) was a highly influential French painter in the Neoclassical style, considered to be the preeminent painter of the era. In the 1780s his cerebral brand of history painting marked a change in taste away from Rococo frivolity toward a classical austerity and severity, heightened feeling chiming with the moral climate of the final years of the ancien régime.
Lucius Junius Brutus (or Lucius Iunius Brutus) was the founder of the Roman Republic and traditionally one of the first consuls in 509 BC. He was claimed as an ancestor of the Roman gens Junia, including Marcus Junius Brutus, the most famous of Caesar's assassins.
Tiberius Junius Brutus (d. ca. 509 BCE) was, according to Livy, the younger son of the Founder of the Roman Republic consul Lucius Junius Brutus (ca. 510 BCE. Tiberius and his elder brother Titus Junius Brutus were monarchists and rebelled against the new republic together with Lucius Tarquinius Superbus.
Titus Junius Brutus was the eldest son of the traditional founder of the Republic of Rome, the Patrician Lucius Junius Brutus. A staunch monarchist, Titus - along with his brother Tiberius, his uncle Lucius Tarquinius Superbus, his cousins Sextus, Spurius and Arruns Tarquinius - attempted to restore the Tarquinii to the throne of Rome. The plot was discovered and he was executed at the age of 23 by order of his father.
