Overview
Queen Boadicea led an uprising against the roman occupying forces in Britain in A.D. 60-61.
Description
Recently widowed, Queen of the Iceni, Boadicea, was flogged and her two daughters violated by avaricious Roman thugs. She retaliated by leading a large force of Celtic tribes and totally destroyed three large settlements before she faced famed Roman General Suetonius, and his disciplined legions and lost... but did she? In order to keep their domination of the Celts in Britain the Romans were forced to bring in more troops from overseas. This led their borders on the continent, and elsewhere, weakened and eventually to the collapse of the Roman Empire. Boadicea's fame lives on and a statue of her and her daughters, in her famed chariot stands on the banks of the Thames outside of the House of Parliament, it is only fitting.
