Nero is Rome’s most infamous emperor, notorious for his eccentricity, cruelty and debauchery. He is alleged to have killed his own mother as well as two of his wives. But was this tyrant all that history makes him out to be or, as is usually the case with history, are the facts distorted based on who was telling the story?

Join Emirati-British author and journalist Hareth Al Bustani to discover the life and legacy of Nero through the writing of his book Nero and the Art of Tyranny, and the research process involved in bringing the past to life.
