Acte and Poppaea by Blue-Aqua-san95 Acte and Poppaea by Blue-Aqua-san95
Some watercolour drawings of Nero's lovers. I am very fond of them two, since they both have an interesting background and contributed much influence in Nero's life.

Claudia Acte was a freed woman and was Nero's Mistress, while Poppaea was Nero's second wife (in case you were wondering who they were).

You won't find much about Acte, since she was a freed person. However Poppaea is a bit more known. 

I would recommend the book "Nero- The man behind the myth" by R.Holland. He doesn't go much in detail about them but does
give a wage idea of their personalities and on how they took a central role in Nero's life. It's a good read, if you're interested 
in ancient Romans.
