Character description

Nero (15 December 37 AD – 9 June 68 AD) was Roman Emperor from 54 to 68, and the last in the Julio-Claudian dynasty. Originally Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus, he changed his name after being adopted by his great uncle and stepfather, Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus; He was named as his heir, bypassing Claudius's own son, Britannicus, and succeeded to the throne in 54 following Claudius' death.

Nero focused much of his attention on diplomacy, trade and enhancing the cultural life of the empire, but according to the historian Tacitus he was viewed by the Roman people as compulsive and corrupt. He was also notorious for the murder of various relatives, including his mother and two of his wives.
