Julius Caesar sought to conquer the Gallic territories for the Roman Empire. The Gallic Wars, at the end of which Caesar would be proclaimed emperor, lasted a period of 7 years and saw the invasion of the Roman Legions as far as current-day Germany. Although the South-East of France was already very Romanized at the time, Caesar sought to enhance this even further. The city adopted Roman law which provided it with a privileged position and relative autonomy. Its inhabitants practised the language, laws and customs of Roman citizens.
