1 Holland, Richard Nero - The Man Behind the Myth
Stroud, Gloucestershie Sutton Publishing 2000 0750924470 / 9780750924474 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. xii + 274 pages. 14 plates, 1 map and a genealogical table. The book aims to show that Nero was more of a liberator than an oppressor, debunking the stories of Nero's tyrannical reign - the heartless tyrant who fiddled while Rome burned, the evil sadist who murdered his wife and his mother, the man who threw Christians to the lions. In a vivid and powerful narrative style, Richard Holland recreates Nero's life from his birth in 37 AD, his marriage to the Emperor Claudius's daughter, Octavia, his accession aged 16, his love affair with Poppaea, the murder of his mother and his first wife, the Great Fire of Rome, the punishment of the Christians, the building of the Golden Palace, and finally the rising of the generals and Nero's deposition. **** NOT EX LIB **** 
Price: 8.00 GBP
