Q. Cassius Longinus, a cousin or brother (it is uncertain) of Cassius, one of the murderers of Julius Caesar, was installed under Caesar's rule as governor of Spain in 49 BC. He was allegedly a harsh ruler and heavily involved in a crisis between the Optimates (aristocrats that wanted to limit the power of the Republic to the elite and not the common classes) and the Populares (which favored the cause of the plebeians or common people), of which Julius Caesar was part of.
