The Julian Calendar is launched by Julius Caesar as a reform of the traditional Roman calendar. Caesar's reform attempts to align the calendar year to the tropical year and divides the calendar year into 12 months or approximately 365.25 days.

The Julian Calendar will be superseded by the Gregorian Calendar in 1582, though not all countries actually replace the Julian Calendar until the 20th century.
