Poppea Sabina was the mistress and then the second wife of Emperor Nero. Poppaea led a lavish lifestyle and was known as a beautiful, calculating woman. Some of her beauty treatments gained great fame (e.g. baths in donkey’s milk). It was she who persuaded Nero to murder his own mother – Agrippina the Younger. Probably Nero himself led to the death of Poppaea in 65 CE.
He then allegedly kicked her, who was pregnant, which resulted in her death. She was buried in the Augustus Mausoleum. Her body was not cremated but embalmed. Tacitus sourly mentions that her body was “cured” with perfume.
