The outcome of the Pompey/Caesar civil war was one of the final nails in the republic’s coffin. After the defeat of Pompey and Cato, Caesar began his marathon of dictatorship titles and took control of the government.

Even though the facade of the republic continued it was Caesar who was in charge.
