Description

At a time when the influence of the Roman gods is on the wane and a baby who will usher in a new era for humanity is being born in a humble manger in Galilee, Tiberius Claudius Nero is proclaimed emperor of Rome. It is an inheritance he has never desired and precipitates the bloody vengeance of a man plagued by resentment and distrust since his youth, a mere puppet in the hands of his ambitious and unscrupulous mother Livia, Caesar Augustus's second wife. This historical novel is filled with intrigue and tells the tale of a man who, despite being the most powerful ruler in the world, was, in Pliny's words, "the gloomiest of men." "En una epoca durante la cual la influencia de los dioses romanos disminuye y nace en un humilde pesebre en Galilea un bebe que marcara una nueva era de la humanidad, Tiberio Claudio Neron es proclamado emperador de Roma. Es una herencia que nunca ha ambicionado y que propicia la sangrienta venganza de un hombre afligido de resentimiento y recelo desde su juventud, un simple titere en manos de su ambiciosa e inescrupulosa madre Livia, segunda esposa de Cesar Augusto. Esta novela historica esta llena de intriga y relata la historia de un hombre que, a pesar de ser el lider mas poderoso del mundo, era, segun Plinio, "el mas triste de los hombres.""show more
