For being a British Celtic Warrior Queen

---

Boudicca was a queen of the Iceni tribe in AD 61. She lead a revolt against the Romans after her husband died when they attempted to annex her territory. As punishment the Romans publicly flogged her and raped her daughters and called in loans that had been made by her husband.

In reply Boudicca raised an army and marched toward Londinium (London).

The Roman Empire sent re-enforcements and eventually the revolt was put down at the battle of Wattling street. To prevent her capture Boudicca committed suicide.

Boudicca was the Queen of Icena In roman eyes boudica was a remarkable and fearsome figure because she was amazing. She kept fighting and she eventually committed suicide by taking poison.

She had two daughters called Heanua and Lannosea. Little is known about them other than that they were raped by rogue Roman troops following the death of Boudicca's husband Prasutagus, who had been King of the powerful Iceni tribe and who had tried to ensure good relations with the Romans by making the then Roman Emperor, Nero, co-heir in his will. The Roman Governor of Britain, Gaius Paulinus, ignored this gesture and took advantage of Prasutagus's death to try and conquer the Iceni, imprisoning Boudicca, torturing her daughters, killing or torturing many of the Iceni people, and seizing their land.

Is there a ghost of boudicca?

Yes there is a ghost of queen Boudicca. Her ghost has been spotted periodically throughout the years. Sightings of her have included in and around Theydon Bois (Essex) Iron age hillfort in the epping forest.Her daughters have also been sighted with her in this area. Boudicca and her soldiers are reported to haunt the icknield way in Ipsden (oxfordshire) along with some Roman soldiers. Other places where Queen Boudicca's ghost has been sighted include Cammeringham Lincolnshire in the area around Ermine street, where she travels around the village. Boudicca's ghost has also been seen at the Ambresbury Hillfort in Essex. There are numerous reports of her loitering in the area. So yes, Boudicca's ghost is still haunting Britain, maybe she has unfinished business or she can't rest because the Britons lost the battle with the Romans and she can't deal with it. It is hard to say....I guess that is a question that we would have to ask Boudicca herself.
