Agrippina

Julia Agrippina the Younger was an Empress of Rome and mother to Nero (another figure on this list).

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.
