Agrippina

Julia Agrippina the Younger was an Empress of Rome and mother to Nero (another figure on this list). She was also an important part of many Roman family trees, not least because her third husband was her uncle Claudius. It is believed that Agrippina poisoned her second husband, and she has definitely murdered her third, Claudius, only four years into the marriage, even after he adopted Nero and made him the heir. She was the one in control within the first few years of Nero’s ruling, which would certainly explain a lot.
