  • Who was Boudicca?
  • Defeat
  • What did Boudicca look like?
  • Boudicca was the wife of Prasutagus, the ruler of a Celtic tribe called Iceni. The Iceni tribe lived in a region of Britain that is now called Norfolk.
  • Famous Speech
  • The Roman army regrouped in the Midlands and finally defeated the Britons in the battle of Watling Street. No one knows what really happened to Boudicca. Some say she killed herself when she knew the Romans had defeated her, others say she fell ill and died.
  • Prasutagus and the Roman Agreement.
  • Great
  • Yes of course.
  • According to Dio, a Roman writer, she was a tall and had red hair hanging below her waist. She had a harsh voice and a piercing, and habitually wore a large golden necklace ( perhaps a torc ),a many coloured tunic, and a thick cloak fastened  by a brooch. 
  • The Rebellion
  • " I am fighting as someone like you who has lost their freedom. I am fighting for my bruised body. The gods will grant us the revenge we deserve. Think of how many of us are fighting, and why.Then you will win this battle or die. That is what I,a woman, plan to do. Let the men live as slaves if they want. I won't!"
  • When the Romans settled in the south Britain in AD 43 they made an agreement with Prasutagus so that he would be able to continue as the ruler of the Iceni. When Prasutagus died, the Romans turned on Iceni. They stole from the Iceni tribesmen, made people slaves and they had Boudicca and her daughters whipped.
  • In about AD 60, the Roman Governor was sent to North Wales to lead an army. While he was away Boudicca led an attack against the tribe's Romans rulers with several other tribes. Her army were called the Britons.  They managed to destroy Camulodunum (Colchester_) , the capital of Roman Britain,and defeated the Roman IX legion.
