Warrior Queen Boudica
The account of Boudica and her tribe, the Iceni, has been recorded by Roman historians, pondered by scholars, and examined by archaeologists who continue to dig for clues about this warrior whose army set fear in the hearts of the Romans. In this feature length special, History recounts Boundica's dramatic story. In the first century A.D., this brave warrior was impelled into a war of revenge when the Iceni tribe, once at peace with Roman occupiers, were suddenly set upon and savaged by Roman Soldiers. Seething with revenge, Boudica's Celtic began attacking settlements across the island, eventually facing the Roman army in one of the biggest and bloodiest battles in British history.
