Nero, the fifth Roman emperor, ruled from 54 to 68 AD. He's infamous for his tumultuous reign marked by extravagance, tyranny, and a penchant for the arts. Nero's early years were promising, but his later rule was marred by scandal and cruelty, including the Great Fire of Rome in 64 AD, which some believe he fiddled while the city burned. His eventual downfall led to his suicide in 68 AD, ending the Julio-Claudian dynasty. Nero remains a captivating figure in Roman history, both reviled and romanticized.
