WOMEN OF HISTORY | BOUDICA (d. AD 61) (Ruth Wilson)

Boudica was queen of the Iceni people in Eastern Britain, who was flogged by the Romans who came to annex her land. It was Boudica herself who led the uprising against them, leading her rebels to destroy three of the Roman settlements and massacring between seventy and eighty thousand people. She told the Romans that she would battle until her death and never live in slavery.

    I love her story. There is a wonderful statute of her in London. She needs a movie of her life.
