Best Answer

Boudicca was never captured, only imprisoned for a while by the treacherous Roman Governor of Britain Gaius Paulinus, following the death of Boudicca's husband King Prasutagus, ruler of the powerful Iceni tribe. Prasutagus had worked hard to build up good relations with the Roman occupiers, and sought to continue this goodwill by making the Roman Emperor Nero co-heir to his kingdom following his death. But Gaius Paulinus refused to honour the arrangement, imprisoning Boudicca, having her two daughters raped by rogue Roman troops, and siezing all the Iceni's land and assets. It was this that sparked the Boudiccan Revolt of 60 AD.

Following the crushing of her rebellion the following year, both Boudicca and her daughters committed suicide by drinking poison rather than suffer the humiliation of being arrested and executed by the Roman authorities. Their burial place is unknown.
