THE BEST 12 Sketches OF 2006! Post here your nominations for the 2007 Calendar!
"Boudica The Warrior Queen"
She is one of my heroes from history.
This is a Queen of the Celtic tribes of Eastern Britain (60/61) that mounted one of the most successful uprisings against the Roman Empire.
Raised as a warrior, she avenged the taking of her land, the raping of her daughters, and her own torture by the occupation forces of the Roman Empire (Nero was the emperor BTW).
Her revolt decimated Roman legions and colonies in Britain.
She used to charge to battle in combat paint in her war chariot.
Lets just same that the male dominated culture of the Romans, did not see her coming at all.
BTW her name means "VICTORY" in the Celt.
(And BTW so you know this is not bull, two separate Roman historians confirm this)
For more info (and how she looked) read her bio:
