Subject Emperors, Nero, Rome


Nero was a Roman emperor everybody loved to hate, even when he was good. He was blamed even when he did the right thing, which wasn t often. Though he inspired a new kind of building approach, he ticked off Romans when he wasn t scaring them. He was a teenager when he took over in the year 54. Along the way Nero had his stepbrother, his mother, and many other people killed. He thought he was a great actor and singer. He was wrong. He nearly bankrupted the empire with his spending. He started out as one of the best Roman emperors and ended as maybe the worst. This is his story.
