Brutus was an important figure in the Roman Empire and also played a large role in Shakespeare's iconic work, Julius Caesar. After researching many different sources, I have yet to identify the height of the man who assassinated Caesar(Brutus, in case you didn't get it). If at all possible, I would like to know the answer and the sources.

    It seems entirely possible that it was never recorded. – Steve Bird Dec 21 '18 at 18:54

    There are known marble busts of Brutus, and I wonder if his height could be estimated from those. – Spencer Dec 22 '18 at 10:47
  • May I ask why you need this information? – Curious Fish Dec 22 '18 at 22:25

You have to read between the lines: nobody (as far as I know) wrote about his height. That almost certainly means he was of average height. If he had been exceptionally tall or short, someone probably would have written about it.

    I thank you all for your feedback. When I get back to school from Christmas Break, I will be able to finish my project. Thank you all so much for taking the time to answer this. – Sparky Dec 30 '18 at 14:37
