Boudicca Statue (Boadicea), Westminster, London


Boudicca (d. AD 60 or 61) was a queen of the Iceni tribe of what is now known as East Anglia who led an uprising of the tribes against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire.


Cassius Dio recorded that she had long red hair down to her hips, a harsh voice and a piercing glare, and habitually wore a large golden necklace (perhaps a torc), a many-coloured tunic, and a thick cloak fastened by a brooch.
