Julius Caesar married thrice in his lifetime; his first wife was Cornelia Cinnilla the daughter of Lucius Cornelius Cinna who served as Consul in the Roman Republic for four consecutive terms; the Cinna family was one of the most influential families in Roman politics. Caesar married Cornelia when he was 17 years of age in 83 BC; Cornelia gave birth to a girl who was named as Julia and died soon after.

His second marriage was to Pompeia Sulla the grand daughter of the Roman Dictator Lucius Cornelius Sulla with the marriage being regarded as a political alliance. Caesar did not have any issue from his second wife and divorced her after she was accused of having an affair with Publius Clodius a tribune of the Roman Republic.

Caesar married Calpurnia Pisonis with whom he was childless; according to sources she had a premonition that he was going to be assassinated and had warned him about the same.

Cleopatra VII the famous Queen of Egypt was Caesar's mistress as was Servilia Caeponis the mother of Brutus one of the chief conspirators in the assassination plot against Caesar. Caesar only biological son was from Cleopatra named as Caesarion and who ruled Egypt as Ptolemy XV.

He had four wives.
The first he was only 16 and married a few months. It was arranged by his father Gaius. Cossutia
the second he loved and had his only legitimate child Julia with,Cornelia
the third Pompeia who cheated
and the fourth Calpurnia who conspired against him when he told her his plans of divorce so he could marry Cleopatra. She is the reason for his assassins

A long-time researcher of Caesar, as the answer states, he had 3 wives. However, daughter Julia did not die "soon after." She was married to Gnaeus Pompeius ("Pompey"), but died young. However, Caesar did have an ungodly number of mistresses in Rome and lord knows how many amorous dalliances in Gaul. The calumny that Cleopatra VII's son was Caesar's is so much gossip from the anti-Caesar element. The man had sex with hundreds of women, married three, but had just one child when he was young. I highly doubt, in his elder years, he had a son by Cleopatra VII. However, it was good political propaganda for her to say it was Caesar's progeny -- especially after Caesar's death. Of interesting note: When Caesar's ardor calmed with one mistress, and went on to another, the women always stayed steadfastly loyal to him.

I was curious about this myself as I always knew he had three wives.  But the reason I looked it up is because Plutarch states (unless it's a misprint by the interpreter) that "Caesar took for his third wife Pompeia."  And I always thought she was his second???  That's what got me confused.
