we should have a triumph every time historia civilis uploads a new video.
Quoting an incredible comment that kickstarted my obsession with Rome:
For more in the video series on Caesar:
Then you should watch the videos on Caesar's governorships after his year as Consul, and the Gallic Wars. Start with Caesar vs the Helvetii, then Caesar vs Ariovistus for Caesar's early victories in Gaul.
Caesar in Gaul: Makin' Waves covers the creation of the First Triumvirate of Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus as well as Caesars efforts to extend Roman influence in Gaul.
The Gallic Wars reignite the next year in Caesar in Gaul: REVOLT!.
At the same time you can watch the death of Crassus, one of the Triumvirs in The Battle of Carrhae. This leads to a good deal of political fallout.
Finally, for the start of Caesar's civil war, watch Caesar Marches on Rome, which is the video immediately preceding the one in the OP."
Thanks /u/g3n0c1de ! Quoted from https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/comments/8iemn6/the_battle_of_ilerda_49_bce/
Fun fact: even though triumphs effectively stopped after the fall of the republic, a final triumph actually occurred in AD 534. This was awarded to the general Belisarius by Justinian I of the Byzantine empire, after the aforementioned recaptured Rome's African territories and huge chunks of mainland Italy. Although Rome had also been recaptured, the triumph was held in the Byzantine capital of Constantinople. I think it's cool that the final triumph happened 60 years after the fall of the empire.
I love this dude's channel
Romans would be so confused about how we conduct military operations these days...
"YOU JUST LEFT IRAQ? That's your territory! WTF are you doing?"
Mary Beard has excellent book about the triumphs.
One thing I noted in Rome was that the road itself the Via Sacra was not very wide at all. Must have been a crowded affair.
Around 5.44 and 14.46 he has snuck (thanks Conan) a unicorn into the procession.

Reddit, you fickle mistress. I post this an hour earlier and fall to obscurity. This guy fucks up his brackets and it's straight to the moon. Lost internet points aside, awesome video.
American politics gets thousands of upvotes, but how many can we get for our Imperators in purple??
Oh god yeah. Time to cream my pants again.
Historia Civilis will forever be my tribune of the plebs <3 His videos are legendary.
I like to imagine the chariot with magic deflecting wards is like the modern bullet proof pope mobiles of today
