Plot Summary

When Julius Cesar fears, that he will probably never be able to defeat the gaulic village of Asterix and his friends, he has the idea of offering the Gauls a deal: if they are able to solve twelve tasks that he selected, he will hand over the Roman empire to them. If not, they have to submit. Written by Michael Zink

Edit
Trivia "The Place That Sends You Mad" is not all that anachronistic. The Roman empire, especially its later eastern part (Byzantium) was famous for its over-complicated and heavy bureaucracy. All that red tape was partly responsible for the empire's fall. See more »
Goofs When Julius Caesar lists the Twelve Labours of Hercules, several of them are wrong, namely Hercules killing Geryones and Diomedes and Hercules freeing Theseus from the underworld. Hercules killed Geryones while having to steal his cows; when Hercules had to steal Diomedes's men-eating horses he fed Diomedes to the horses; Hercules went into the underworld to capture the multi-headed dog Cerberus, during which he also rescued the captive Theseus.
