Julia Caesaris (ca. 130 BC – 69 BC) was a daughter of Gaius Julius Caesar II and Marcia (sister of consul Quintus Marcius Rex). She was a sister of Gaius Julius Caesar III (the father of Julius Caesar) and Sextus Julius Caesar III.

At about 110 BC she married Gaius Marius; as a result, she is sometimes referred to as Julia Maria. They had a son, Gaius Marius the Younger.

According to Plutarch, it was by marrying her, a patrician woman, that the up-start Marius got the snobbish attention of the senate and launched his political career. Julia is remembered as a virtuous woman devoted to her husband and their only child. Her reputation alone permitted her to keep her status, even after Sulla's persecutions against Marius himself and his allies.

Julia Caesaris died in 69 BC and received a devoted funeral eulogy from her nephew Julius Caesar.[1]
