Boudica - Queen of the British Iceni Tribe, a Celtic tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire in 60 AD. Cassius Dio says that she was "possessed of greater intelligence than often belongs to women", that she was tall and had hair described as red, reddish-brown or tawny hanging below her waist. She had a harsh voice and piercing glare, and habitually wore a large golden necklace (perhaps a torc), a many-coloured tunic, and a thick cloak fastened by a brooch.
