Boudicca, Queen of the Iceni (native Britons), often referred to by the Latin form, Boadicea. Her husband, King Prasutagus, had been a tributary of the Romans, but on his death AD60 the territory of Iceni was violently annexed. Boudicca was scourged and her daughters raped. Boudicca raised the whole of SE England in revolt, and before the main Roman armies could return from campaigning in Wales she burned Londinium (London), Verulamium (St Albans), and Carnoldunum (Colchester). Later the Romans under governor Suetonius Paulinus defeated the British between London and Chester; they were virtually annihilated and Boudicca poisoned herself. From Webster's New World Encyclopedia, 117.
