The great fire of Rome in 64 AD burned for 6 days. There is evidence that Nero did all he could to help save lives. But, after the flames burned out, his decisions were less prudent.
Nero's grand plan after the fire...
And how he planned to rebuild Rome on a grand scale. But, he needed the money to do so. Nero stole it by robbing the temples of their golds and fortune.
"I don't need protection from the gods, the gods need protection from me!" ~ Nero
