      By age 39/40, Julius Caesar had been a widower, divorce, governor (propraetor) of Further Spain, captured by pirates, hailed imperator by adoring troops, quaestor, aedile, consul, named to an important priesthood, and elected pontifex maximus (although he may not have been installed) -- a lifelong honor usually reserved for the end of a man's career. Caesar is sick, not fit to be a king he tells a story about a competition in the river that Caesar and him had, where Caesar got too tired and could not finish the swim against the current and Cassius had to save him and bring him to land, this shows that Caesar is not strong enough to be a ruler.
