Warrior Queen Boudica Documentary
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.
