More > work by master storyteller and popular historian Jacob Abbott. Beginning with the previous emperors Caligula and Claudius, Abbott lays the groundwork for Nero’s early years and family background.

Threatened with death by execution, Nero committed suicide, finally ending the Julio-Claudian Dynasty.< Less
