His former tutors, the philosopher <persfn>Seneca</persfn> and <persfn>Burrus</persfn>, commander of the pretorian guards, were placed at the head of the government, and the early years of his reign were marked, on the whole, by clemency and justice. He caused his rival <persfn>Britannicus</persfn> to be removed by poison in 55. In 59 he procured the assassination of his mother, of whose control he had become impatient. <persfn>Burrus</persfn> died in 62, whereupon <persfn>Seneca</persfn> retired from public life. Freed from the restraint of his former advisers, he gave free rein to a naturally tyrannical and cruel disposition. He divorced <persfn>Octavia</persfn> in order to marry <persfn>Popp<ae/a</persfn>, and shortly afterward put <persfn>Octavia</persfn> to death (62). <persfn>Popp<ae/a</persfn> ultimately died from the effects of a kick administered by her brutal husband. Having been accused of kindling the fire which in 64 destroyed a large part of <city>Rome</city>, he sought to divert attention from himself by ordering a persecution of the Christians, whom he accused of having caused the Conflagration. He put Seneca to death in 65, and 66-68 visited Greece, where he competed for the prizes as a musician and charioteer in the religious festivals. He was overthrown by a revolt under <persfn>Galba</persfn>, and stabbed himself to death with the assistance of his secretary.<br/
