From A History of Wales , pp. 27-28:
"The resistance of the tribes of Wales did not come to an end with the capture of Caratacus [in AD 51]... and in AD 61 Anglesey, the chief centre of anti-Roman sentiment, came under attack. Tacitus provides a dramatic description of the anguish of the Roman soldiers as they saw across the Menai Strait the druids in awesome panoply. But they soon cast aside their fear and their clothes; they swam the strait, killed the druids and destroyed the sacred groves. The Romans were prevented from consolidating their hold upon north-west Wales because the Iceni, embittered by the treatment meted out to them by Roman officials, rose in revolt under their valiant queen Boudicca (or Buddug, to give her the name coined by Theophilus Evans). The revolt was ferocious. Thousands of Romans and their allies were slaughtered; London, which was already becoming the de facto capital of the province, was burnt so thorolughly that a layer of ash was excavated there almost two thousand years later. The revenge of the Romans was even more ferocious. Tens of thousands of Britons were killed and Norfolk was left desolate for generations."
Boudicca married Prasutagus King of the Iceni. (Prasutagus King of the Iceni was born about 0012 and died in 0059.)
