Dear Gill,
actually there is a mistake in the clip. March was the first month of the year in the old Roman calendar adopted by Romulus, but it was Julius Cesar who changed the old Roman calendar and estabilished that there are 12 months in a year (the old Roman calendar had 10 months) and that the first month i January. In fact before the Gregorian calendar (that fixed a problem related to leap years) there was the Julian calendar (which for istance is still used by the Russian church).

Osrevinu

    And there is another mistake, it’s true that Cesar was born in July but 44BC is the year of his death, 15th March 44 BC. He was born in 101/100 BC.

    Osrevinu

      Wow! It’s amazing all your knowledge, of course it’s a part of your culture because I suppose you are Italian.
      Sorry if my English is bad.

        Gregor was a pope that fixed leap year problem. Leap year was up till then every 4th year (Julian calendar). One calendar year is long 365 days few hours more etc. This few hours more gets every 4 year a new day 28 of February. But it shouldn’t get every 4 year, because of exact math. That little bit too much presented a problem after several hundreds of years. The problem was that seasons got mixed up. Like winter in July.

        Gregor fixed leap year problem with additional rules. Leap year is every 4th year unless the year can be divided by 100, then it is not leap year, but if year is divided by 400 then it is leap year again. So year 1900 was leap year (100 rule), but 2000 was not (400 rule).

        Gregor also took away few days to fix initial problem of mixed seasons.

        In video there is mistake, Gregor has nothing to do with swapping the months January and February at the beginning of the year.

        According to the Oxford dictionary: https://blog.oxforddictionaries.com/2016/01/11/months-names/ “Two months were added to the end of the calendar year around 713 BC, and the beginning of the year was moved to 1 January in 153 BC.”

        rokaly

    yes, and that’s why one of the month was called by the name of Julius

    NickolasYablokov

    The another fact is that in ancient Russia the first month of the year was March despite of using Julian calendar where January was the first one. BTW, this is another mistake of the video))))

    NickolasYablokov

Very interesting, I don’t known the origin of their names.
