In AD 60-61, Boudicca of the Iceni tribe inspired and led the largest revolt against Roman rule in Britain. Unhappy with the treatment of her daughters by Roman soldiers she raised a huge army and set about destroying Roman settlements. She burnt down Colchester, London and St Albans. The Roman writer Cassius Dio said that Boudicca was "most tall, in appearance most terrifying, in the glance of her eye most fierce, and her voice was harsh". But the revolt didn't last and she was finally defeated by Paulinus (Governor of Britain). To avoid capture it is believed that she took her own life by taking poison.
