Summary

The legacy of Emperor Nero, who apparently fiddled while Rome burned. Recent scholarship has sought to rehabilitate Nero to a certain extent, to try to understand him in the context of his time. He was indeed a man who succeeded in shocking the Roman elite, but also someone who could strike a chord with the public and was well-thought-of outside the centre of political intrigue.
