FAQs Answer

Who was Boudicca?



She was Queen of the Iceni (native Britons) and led an uprising against the Roman occupation in Britain. She died in AD 61 by poisoning herself after the Romans defeated the British. It certainly gave the Romans a nasty scare and it made them change the way they dealt with the conquered population. It was the high-handed treatment of Boudicca and her people which provoked the revolt in the first place.
