The Great Fire

Post  Roberta2000 on Thu Apr 16, 2015 9:54 am

One of the most famous events that happened during the reign of Nero was the Great Fire of Rome which occurred in 64 AD. Nero was in Antium when the Great Fire started in the Circus Maximus. The fire lasted for nine days! When Nero returned he started building a new city, because of this some people think that Nero caused the fire so that he could build a new city in his name. Nero blamed the Great Fire on the Christians.

Roberta your topic about the Great Fire was interesting. It is because you mention where it started which was in Circus Maximus in 64 AD. Another thing that you mention was that it lasted for nine days which was really serious because Rome is a place in summer that becomes really hot. At last what you have said was good but next time add some things that you don’t known.

Great Job, Roberta!! The Great Fire was terrible event that happened during Nero's empire. It lasted for about 9 days and not only that but it was blamed on the christians. Nero really hated the christians. After burning Rome, Nero built the Golden Palace.

Great topic! The Great Fire was one of the most famous events of Nero's rule. People blamed it on him, but he would put the balme on Christians since he did not respect the new religion. When Nero returned from Antium he started to rebuild the city.

Great work Roberta! This was a very good topic to talk about i really enjoyed reading it. nobody liked him and when he died the the Golden House of Nero was still standing, but since nobody wanted to remember him and all the bad things he had done to entertain himself Vespasian decided to to build the Colosseum. Great work!
