Sextus Afranius Burrus

Sextus Afranius Burrus , Pretorian Prefect, was Nero's tutor and later advisor. For the first eight years of Nero's rule of the Roman Empire, he and Seneca the Younger helped maintain a stable government. He acquiesced to Nero's murder of Agrippina the younger, but he lost his influence over Nero anyway. Died in 62, some say of poison.
