Considered a national heroine and a symbol of the struggle for independence, Boudica was a celtic Queen who led a massive uprising against the Roman Empire that ruled over Britain at the time. While she ultimately failed to free the isles of Roman control, she and her army wrought destruction across the Roman settlements, killing many soldiers and even causing Emperor Nero to consider withdrawing from Britain entirely. However, at the last moment, her army was defeated and she committed suicide in order to avoid being caught.
