Nero's HelpTool wrote:Nero Claudius Caesar
born in the year 37 A.D., died 68 A.D. Roman Emperor from 54 - 68, son Aggripinas, adopted by Emperor Claudius, intitally ran a constructive government with Seneca, in agreement with the Senate, had his mother murder Agrippina, he freed himself of sensible advisors, appearances as artiste and chariot driver; carried out sovereign court cases; put the blame for the Great Fire of Rome on the Christians; first persecution of Christians. Pisonic conspiracy in the Senate against Nero failed - even greater repression. Uprisings in Gaulle, Spain and Africa provoked the decline of the Pretorian guard and its ostracism in the Senate: comitted suicide (68 ) - serious empirical crisis in Rome.

In German, Italian and a number of other languages, the capital of Italy and home of a certain ancient fiddling arsonist emporer is called "Rom" without a trailing "e". And that's what most of us burn too (sort of).
