Crime had become more rampant in the cities. Several examples exist in the royal family and the Emperors. Examples include Nero, who was not only exceptionally cruel, but so out of tune with the needs of his people that, it is expected, he lit a fire in the city that burned a large portion of it to the ground. Even if he didn 't do this, he certainly took advantage of the situation by building an extremely large and luxurious palace for himself. Another internal factor was corruption, oppression, and other problems with the government.
