Nero

The rise of the Roman Empire was seen by the Real Illuminati at the time as the culmination of centuries of waiting and planning. The Inner Circle believed that Rome had the power to crush all opposition beyond its borders and that it was only a matter of time before they conquered the entire world. Rome, the Real Illuminati believed, would realize their founder's dream and become the last incarnation of Alexandria.

The fire of 64 AD which consumed half the city made them reconsider their view of the Empire and its future. The reason for this was not the fire itself, but the man who had caused it. Nero, then Emperor of Rome, enjoyed the firm support of the Real Illuminati, and while he was loyal to the powerful group, he proved rather difficult to control. He believed that the Emperor deserved a lot more splendor and grandeur than what had been afforded his predecessors, hence he insisted on having a new palace built for himself. When he realized that no suitable location was available in the city, he decided to improvise and set fire to Rome.

While historians debate whether or not Nero had caused the fire himself, the records in the Secret Library of the Real Illuminati contain plenty of written evidence pertaining to the fact, including the personal account of the centurion who was supposed to toss the first torch into the streets until his Emperor, standing right behind him, decided he wanted to do it himself. The witness accounts also record that Nero broke out in song and danced all night long while flames consumed much of the city.

After the destruction, the Emperor wasted no time beginning the construction of his new palace. During the constructions, the Real Illuminati met with him in an effort to convince him that such behavior will turn the people against him and make the planned conquest next to impossible. Nero responded by having the palace built even larger than he had planned and by commissioning the construction of a giant statue of himself.

It was then that the Real Illuminati decided to deal with Nero the same way they had with Julius Caesar. Their plan to assassinate the out-of-control narcissist ultimately failed for one very simple reason: not even the bravest, fiercest, or even most desperate assassins dared to go anywhere near the man who sang and danced while Rome burned and even had his own mother killed years earlier. Hence the Real Illuminati decided that the best thing they could do under the circumstances was to cut their losses and start over somewhere else.

As soon as the Real Illuminati abandoned Rome, Nero's empire descended into chaos. Within years he collected himself more enemies than he could count, which ultimately drove him to assisted suicide. It was all downhill for the Roman Empire after that, and while the Real Illuminati could have returned and seized control, they believed that after Julius the Traitor and Nero it was just a matter of time before yet another Roman Emperor messed up their plans. Hence they followed their first impulse and moved on. They did, however, celebrate with song and dance on the day the news of Nero's demise reached their ears.
