Nobel, Alfred Bernhard (1833-96), Swedish chemist, inventor and philanthropist, born in Stockholm. After receiving an education in Saint Petersburg, Russia and in the United States, where he studied mechanical engineering, he returned to St. Petersburg to work under his father, developing mines, torpedoes and other explosives. In a family owned factory in Heleneborg, Sweden, he sought to develop a safe way to handle nitroglycerin, after a factory explosion in 1864 killed his younger brother and four other people. In 1867 Nobel achieved his goal; by using an organic packing material to reduce the volatility of the nitroglycerin, he produced what he called dynamite. He later produced ballistite, one of the first smokeless powders. At the time of his death he controlled factories for the manufacture of explosives in many parts of the world. His will provided that the major portion of his $9 million estate be set up as a fund to establish yearly prizes for merit in physics, chemistry, medicine and physiology, literature, and world peace..From Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.

Nero.37-68 A.D., Emperor of Rome (54-68) whose early reign was dominated by his mother Agrippina the Younger (great granddaughter of Emperor Augustus).
He was declared Emperor at 17 years old. In 59 A.D. Nero had his mother murdered for her criticism of his mistress Poppaea. In 62 he divorced and later executed Octavia his wife and married Poppaea Sabina whom he subsequently kicked to death. He then married Statilia Messalina after executing her husband.

Throughout his first five years as Emperor he relied on the counsel of Burrus who soon died, possibly poisoned. Nero had his rival Britannicus poisoned and he may have set the Great Fire of Rome (64 A.D.). 

His cruelty and irresponsibility provoked widespread revolts, which led to his suicide. In 68 the Gallic and Spanish legions, along with the Praetorian Guards, rose against him and he fled Rome. Declared a public enemy by the Senate, he committed suicide on June 9, 68 A.D., near Rome.
