Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus, also known as Pompey or Pompey the Great, was a military leader and politician during the fall of the Roman Republic. He was born in 106 BCE and died on 28th September 48 BCE. His father was Gnaeus Pompeius Strabo.

Pompey's life can be easily split into four phases: his early career (106-71 BCE), his consulship until the triumvirate (70-60 BCE), his later career in Rome (59-50 BCE) and the Civil War (49-48 BCE).
