      Julius Caesar

    • B.

      Senate

    Correct Answer
    A. Julius Caesar
    Explanation
    Julius Caesar had more power than the Senate. As a military general and dictator of Rome, Caesar held significant authority and control over the Roman Empire. He implemented various reforms, expanded the empire, and centralized power in his hands. The Senate, on the other hand, was a governing body composed of aristocrats and senators who held limited power and acted as advisors to the Roman leaders. While the Senate had some influence, Caesar's position as dictator gave him the ultimate authority and made him the most powerful figure in Rome.
