Boadicea Queen of the Iceni.. fascinating legend

IMG_1138
Since I can’t remember I dream with Boubicea the Queen of Iceni and how her legend like many in England’s History of brave women, fascinate me. My admiration for the British women started very early age and the more I get to know the more admire them…they bring their men up to TREAT THEM EQUAL. They are made of something special and Boudicea the Queen of Iceni is just beyond words…here I have chosen some images that I think she should look like…

Boudicca (also spelled Boudica or Boudicea) was the queen of the Iceni, a tribe based in modern day Norfolk, in eastern England. In A.D. 60, she led a revolt against the Romans that resulted in the destruction of two (possibly three) Roman settlements and almost drove the empire off the island. Now this is something out of extraordinary and it is recorded by the Romans. When I get to Italy I will go to find out more…

Much of what we know about her comes from two Roman writers, Publius Cornelius Tacitus (A.D. 56-117) and Cassius Dio (A.D. 150-235).

The revolt began after the death of her husband, Prasutagus, around A.D. 60. Tacitus writes that the Romans seized Iceni property, flogged Boudicca and raped her two daughters. She then raised an army and led a rebellion against the Romans which, after initial success, was crushed at the Battle of Watling Street.

This all happened here in East Anglia…a magic land full of MAGIC AND BEAUTY and I invite the whole world to come to visit and then you understand why I love it so much…my daughter and my husband were born in East Anglia… wonderland of history and everything else!
