Nero Starts out ok, but quickly becomes intoxicated with power Was fond of giving concerts, during the great fire of Rome in 64 CE, reportedly Nero was giving a recital of the Sack of Troy and did not stop the performance to try and assist with the fire, hence “fiddling while Rome burns” Built a ridiculously large and expensive house, the Domus Aurea that extended from the Palatine to the Esquiline hills. The vestibule (receiving hall) was over a mile long, with a bronze Colossus of the emperor 120 feet tall
