The invaders promised peace. Peace to the ancient Celtic kingdoms that obeyed them. But oaths are only honoured between men, and when King Prasutagus dies the Roman invaders bring a new threat to Queen Boudicca: relinquish power or die.
They expect her to cower. They don’t expect this fierce queen of Britain to march against the mighty Roman army—and win.
