Seiri Omaar Lyr Req: Songs about Boadicea/Boudicca (19) RE: Lyr Req: Songs about Boadicea/Boudicca 21 Nov 05


Paul is correct, Boudica's husband died before the Romans flogged Boudica and violated her daughters. "Boudica" is the correct spelling, as any of the variants that are commonly used could not have been used in the "Celtic" language which she spoke.
Joe Offer: She is an attested historical figure, not a deity. In fact, she never evolved into one. Not long after her time she was basically forgotten until the works of Tacitus and Dio Cassius were rediscovered during the Renaissance.


And this is proof that I actually learned something in school. Go me.

Cheers, Seiri.
