 Nero
Nero was horrorstruck at the enormity of the crime and terrified at its possible consequences.
Early in 65 Nero was panic-stricken by the discovery of a formidable conspiracy involving such men as Faenius Rufus, Tigellinus's colleague in the prefecture of the praetorian guards, Plautius Lateranus, one of the consuls elect, the poet Lucan, and, lastly, not a few of the tribunes and centurions of the praetorian guard itself.
Nero died on the 9th of June 68, in the thirty-first year of his age and the fourteenth of his reign, and his remains were deposited by the faithful hands of Acte in the family tomb of the Domitii on the Pincian Hill.

 Wikinfo | Nero
Ahenobarbus (Nero) was the son of Agrippina the younger, 4th wife of Claudius Nero Germanicus, who had adopted (see adoption in Rome) him just before his death (which is considered the result of a manoeuvre by Agrippina and Seneca, Nero's tutor) most probably to ensure his succession.
Nero's reign, garnished with a constellation of murders and immoral behaviours of all the figures involved, is not among the brightest pages of Roman history.
However, Poppaea became Nero's mistress in 58 and is supposed to have organised Agrippina's murder (59) with Nero's acquiescence.

 Roman Emperors DIR Nero
Before his death, Claudius, though he already had a son Britannicus, had adopted Lucius, who changed his name to Nero Claudius Caesar, (a great-great-grandson of Augustus) at Agrippina's instigation; instrumental too in the transfer of power was the influence of Seneca, Nero's tutor, and of Sextus Afranius Burrus, the praetorian prefect.
Nero, last of the Julio-Claudians, had been placed in the difficult position of absolute authority at a young age coupled with the often-contradictory efforts of those in a position to manipulate him.
Nero's reign was not without military operations (e.g., the campaigns of Corbulo against the Parthians, the suppression of the revolt of Boudicca in Britain), but his neglect of the armies was a critical error.

 Nero burning rome and ancient roman politics
When Nero came to the imperial seat, he was hailed by Plebian and Patrician alike as a just and decent man. He had much prestige as a benevolent monarch, and put on many of the good airs so studiously fostered by his tutor and close advisor, the philosopher Seneca.
Perhaps the most famous of all Nero’s edicts, however, came after the great fire, with his anti-Christian legislature declaring Christians to be “haters of all men,” and treacherous villians who were to be put on public display and executed.
Virtually all of them blamed Nero himself for starting the fires, justifying their accusations with evidence of his insatiable lust for death and chaos and his search for an excuse to execute the Christians he saw as a threat to his own divinity as Caesar.

Conquests under Augustus remained limited (some small wars against tribes in the Alps, Spain and Illyria), limited to Egypt and some small extras.
Part of this explains the laws, introduced by several emperors, for a more human treatment of slaves AND the limitation on freeing of slaves (under Augustus it had become a 'fashion' for the rich to free slaves, cf.
Apart from that, Caesar and several emperors realised the disadvantages of slave labour, forcing rich landowners to employ free people, apart from slaves (for Caesar: Suetonius).

Agrippina was very influential with the young Nero at first, but as might be expected from the example that she had set, he gradually became estranged with her.
He had her removed from the palace in 55 A.D., and then ordered his mother's murder 4 years later.
As was nearly always the case with the Roman emperors, plots were continuously in the making to overthrow Nero, including the Pisonian Conspiracy in 65 A.D. However, Nero was sly enough to avoid all the traps for a number of years.
