The Roman Emperor Nero
Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, born in 37 AD, ruled the Roman Empire from 54 until his death in 68 AD.
Nero's fame began in childhood. Even before his mother's marriage to the Emperor of Rome, at the age of only 9, Nero was the leader of the aristocratic youth at Rome's famous 800 year celebration. At the public equestrian games, he received more applause than the actual emperor's son.
At the age of just 14, Nero was declared an adult and appointed proconsul and senator.
This was followed by the forced marriage of the 16-year-old Nero to the 13-year-old Octavia, daughter of Claudius. Thus, Nero was not only related to the Julio-Claudian house on his father's and mother's side, but also directly to rulers. To secure his son's position as future emperor, Nero's mother poisoned the emperor Claudius, paving the way for Nero's future.
