Calpu'rnia

2. The daughter of L. Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus, consul in B. C. 58, and the last wife of the dictator Caesar, whom he married in B. C. 59. (Suet. Jul. 21; Plut. Caes. 14, Pomp. 47, Cat. Min. 33; Appian, App. BC 2.14; Caes. Gal. 1.12.) Calpurnia seems not to have intermeddled in political affairs, and to have borne quietly the favours which her husband bestowed upon Cleopatra, when she came to Rome in B. C. 46. The reports that had got abroad respecting the conspiracy against Caesar's life filled Calpurnia with the liveliest apprehensions; she was haunted by dreams in the night, and entreated her husband, but in vain, not to leave home on the fatal Ides of March, B. C. 44. (Appian, App. BC 2.115; D. C. 44.17; Vell. 2.57; Suet. Jul. 81; Plut. Caes. 63.)
