Nero: Role-played his wife, who he had murdered.
Despite instituting some positive political changes in Rome, Nero had his faults, to say the least. In 64 AD, a great fire took out roughly 75% of Rome. There were rumors that Nero himself started the fire in order to make room for a new castle. Even if he didn’t, he did nothing to try and stop the fire, blaming Christians. It became a time of torture and oppression for Christians in Rome.
Nero also married a man he randomly saw on the street because he resembled his wife, whom he had murdered. He made the man dress in his wife’s old clothes and act like a woman. On top of that, he had a separate relationship with a slave in which Nero himself played the role of his wife.
