Nero was very poor when young, hus father had died when he was only 3 years old. His mother, Agrippina, had married her uncle, Claudius, who was currently the emperor of Rome. Agrippina convinced her husband to adopt Nero. Once Nero was adopted, she murdered her husband and at 17 Nero became emperor. The first five years of Nero's empire were kind and gentle. He decreased taxes and ended the violent gladiator fights. When discovering that his mother had traded him, he gave her a death sentence and he changed completely. He burn't down Rome to built it new, but in gold. Then he blamed the burning on the christians. During his power, many christians were killed.
