Well, the last episode ended on a cliff-hanger! So it seems fitting to continue on from right where we left off. Claudius is dead, and who should emerge as the new imperator … none other than Nero, the son of Agrippina. In this episode, we explore the early years of Nero’s rule under the guidance of Agrippina, Seneca, and Burrus. These early years are the golden times of Nero’s rule (and even these are marred with certain elements of tragedy).
