His father died, and a few years later he was possibly married to a wealthy young woman, Cossutia. This marriage was soon broken off, and at 18 he married Cornelia, the daughter of a high-ranking member of the Popular faction. She later bore him his only real child, a daughter named Julia. When the dictator, Sulla, was in power, he ordered Caesar to divorce her. When Caesar refused, Sulla proscribed him (listed him to be executed), and Caesar went into hiding. Caesar's influential friends and relatives eventually got him a pardon.
