Metal Gaia

 

Boudica is the Queen of the British Iceni tribe who led a revolt against the Romans in 60 AD.

Her husband, the original ruler, was an ally with Rome.

When he died, Boudica took over.

Yet the Romans did not respect a female ruler and decided that this would be the ideal time to annex her kingdom.

Boudica was publicly humiliated (flogged) and her daughters were raped.

Yet the Iceni people had a strong amount of respect for their queen.

With her people behind her, Boudica led a revolt against the Romans that would go down in history.
