Meanwhile, with the Latin phrase that concerns us, Veni, vidi, vici , we must go back a long way back in time, more precisely in the year 47 BC when the Roman military and politician Julio César popularized it at the request of a demonstration he held in front to one of the most important political institutions of those years corresponding to the late Roman Republic as was the Roman Senate, and through which he wanted to express the following: I came, I saw and I conquered .
The cause that triggered the phrase was nothing more and nothing less than euphoria after defeating the powerful Farnaces II of Pontus, son of the monarch of this kingdom, Mithridates VI .
Before the battle of Zela took place in which Caesar and his army emerge victorious, Farnaces II, had defeated the Romans and was certainly hard on the punishments and vexations of the soldiers. But Julio César would take revenge being very forceful and fast in the victory, in just five days he prevailed, and also with it he knew how to end forever with the threat of the ponies in the region of Asia Minor.
Nor should we ignore the need for César to screw the senators, especially the most conservative faction led by Pompey the Great and with which Julius Caesar maintained a strong dispute, this victory so impressive and effective. After this civil confrontation between both leaders, Julio César, who would be victorious, won the sum of public power in Rome.
As a result of the above, the phrase is often used in colloquial use to refer to those issues that come out well, successfully, in a very short time.
