Why “Rubicon”?

So… why the name Rubicon?

The Rubicon is a river in Italy. It was of importance in ancient times as the border of Rome. The Roman Army was prohibited from crossing this border, as that would be considered a hostile act against the Roman Senate.

In 54 BC, Julius Caesar marched the Roman Army across the Rubicon, signaling his intention to overthrow the Roman Senate. As he did so, legend says he uttered the words “Alea Iacta Est” - The die is cast. This action led to Julius being crowned as Emperor of Rome, and the start of the Roman Empire.

Of course, in order to cross any river, you need to use a bridge.
