Secrets of the Dead: The Nero Files The Roman emperor Nero is considered one of history's greatest criminals - a cruel, insane, and brutal ruler. His name has become synonymous with evil, and he stands accused of killing his step-brother, his wife, and his mother, as well as burning Rome to the ground for his own artistic inspiration.
But are these stories true? Can they be proven? Recent research, modern interpretations of historical sources, and new discoveries cast a different light on the accusations levelled at the Roman emperor. Secrets of the Dead: The Nero Files investigates Nero's reign with the help of criminal psychologist Thomas Müller, using ""cold case"" methodology.
Did history get it wrong? Was Nero a far better ruler than he's ever been given credit for?
