there’s a lot of myth about caligula and nero, so probably their "evil" is probably exagerated. Like the burning of Rome being credited to Nero and that story of incitatus being made a consul. But still, caliglula didn’t seemed a very nice guy

Caligula seems to have been more brutal, executing people for fun. Suetonius devotes quite a few pages to his evil deeds.

Nero was a very lavish spender, as seen by his Golden House. After the great fire he cleared away whole redisential sections of the city to make room for his own buildings.

Both were particularly nasty, but I’d have to go with Caligula.

Nero. He had a really sick mind.

Found an interesting site with some guy’s list of "The Top 5 worst Roman Emperors". He put Caligula as number 1, but Nero as only number 4. http://ancienthistory.about.com/library/weekly/aatp5romanemperors.htm

I was just going top mention Elagabalus was worse than both of them. Seems this site disgrees with me.

Hard to say, but contrary to the above mentioned list, I don’t think either of them was the worst Emperor Rome ever had, if only because Caligula did have a good start to his reign, and Nero actually did a lot of good as well as bad (even if in the end the balance sheet ends in negative). Of those two I’d say Caligula was worse. But both were far and away outstripped by Commodus; in my opinion the worst Emperor Rome ever had. It has been said that of all the Emperors of Rome, he is the only one about whom nothing good can be said.
