Apparently, the letter ‘c’ was always hard, as in can, never soft as in city, and ae was pronounced as ai in aisle. Thus, Caesar would have been pronounced–not as see-zer as we say it today–but rather as kai-ser, with that final ‘r’ rolled. Which, of course, now makes sense of the German title ‘Kaiser’. Which I had never connected with ‘Caesar’. Sometimes I despair at my own abstruseness. How obvious it now seems in retrospect! How strange that ‘Kaiser’ is the correct way to pronounce it. Julius Caesar becomes Yulius Kaiser.
Also how cool is it that the word ‘video’ means ‘I see’? The answer, ladies and gentlemen, is very.
