Nero (37-68)

"Nero (/ˈnɪəroʊ/ NEER-oh; Latin: Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus;[i] 15 December 37 – 9 June 68 AD) was the last Roman emperor of the Julio-Claudian dynasty. He was adopted by his great-uncle Claudius and became Claudius´ heir and successor. Like Claudius, Nero became emperor with the consent of the Praetorian Guard. Nero´s mother, Agrippina the Younger, was likely implicated in Claudius´ death and Nero´s nomination as emperor. She dominated Nero´s early life and decisions until he cast her off. Five years into his reign, he had her murdered." - ( 30.10.2019)
