"IN THE DAYS OF ROMAN BRITAIN, IN THE 1ST CENTURY AD, THERE LIVED A WARRIOR QUEEN BY THE NAME OF BOUDICCA. FLAME-HAIRED AND PROUD, SHE RULED THE ICENI, IN A TIME WHEN ROME WANTED TO RULE ALL."
- Megan Dew
Boudicca, Boudica, Bunduca, Voadicia, Boadicea, Boudiga, are just some of the ways historians have spelled her name, which probably comes from a Celtic word meaning "victory".
Regardless of how the name is spelled, she meant "trouble" for the Roman occupation of Britain. After her revolt succeeded in burning three major towns and slaughtering tens of thousands of Roman citizens and allies, the Emperor Nero seriously considered whether this distant land was worth the cost to stay. Governor G.S. Paulinus' remarkable victory - perhaps at the location later known as "Watling Street" - reaffirmed Roman domination. They would remain in Britain for over 300 more years.
But it might have been different. Can you as the leader of a various cluster of independent Celtic tribes cause enough trouble and loss to make the Romans leave your island? Can you as the commander of scattered Roman troops snuff out the rebellion more effectively than Paulinus? Will London burn or be saved? These are your challenges in Boudicca: The Warrior Queen.
