Publisher's Summary

Nero. The very name seems to embody the character of a tyrant. The years of his reign come down to us with tales full of self-serving totalitarianism. Wasn’t he the one that fiddled while Rome burned after all? Wasn’t this the mad monarch who wished to embark upon a building project, so he set the old buildings that were in his way on fire? But besides this power-mad tyranny, what do we know about Nero? Surely even the most despotic dictator has a good side? Come along with us as we explore the multifaceted nature of a man who is often presented as a one-dimensional, dictatorial caricature. 

You will learn about:

  • A Wedding and a Funeral
  • The Great Fire of Rome
  • Killing His Wife and Marrying His Manservant
  • The Jewish-Roman War
  • Nero’s Suicide

A good short overview of Nero.

A good short overview of Nero. Not as black and white as what I knew about Nero.
