3 of Nero's Great Acheivements


1. His first great achievement was he had a focus on the arts.  He encouraged the progress in poetry, literature, and painting.  During this time the cultural aspect of Roman life increased drastically.  Some of the greatest theories in philosophy emerged in this time expanding even the common minds became interest in the arts.


2. Another great thing Nero accomplished was rebuilding Rome to a glorified beautiful palace.  He had always wanted to rebuild the city to perfection and the myth is that he burnt down the city himself and rebuilt it.


3. Nero’s also accomplished peace within the kingdom beside Judea.  This allowed for cultural diffusion and the expansion of ideas and thoughts.  This is very important and the growth in all aspects of life occurred.  Trading was easy and travel was safe.  This was the Roman Empire needed for expansion.
