English summary: Despite all efforts of modern historians to present a more nuanced picture, the Roman Emperor Nero lives on in the general awareness as the murderer of his mother and the bloodthirsty persecutor of Christians. His life and fame, from the Christian verdict against the imperial anti-Christ to the presentation by P. Ustinov (Quo Vadis), are presented here: From the rise of the weak-willed puppet in the hands of the ambitious mother to the independent and headstrong personality, from his by no means unsuccessful operations in government to the ever more dominant artistic career as an actor and charioteer, from the passions of his private life to the miserable death by his own hand. German text.
