The Great Fire of Rome was ignited on this date, 1,950 years ago. Some accounts blame Emperor Nero for starting the fire, while others say he just took advantage of the aftermath to remake Rome to his liking.
History teaches that Nero was among the worst Roman emperors, both crazy and bloodthirsty. Some modern scholars debate the historical portrait, pointing to his popularity among the plebeians and his contribution to the arts. The only way to learn the truth would be to travel back in time. This sounds like a job for Superman!
