Boudicca and Celts. Historical artwork of Queen Boudicca and Celtic Iceni men. The Celtic Iceni were a tribe that inhabited the area of England now known as Norfolk from the 1st century BC to the 1st century AD. Despite being invaded by the Romans they were allowed to keep their independence until the death of King Prasutagus, Boudicca's husband, in 61 BC. He bequeathed his kingdom jointly to the Emperor and his daughters, which angered Rome who seized his entire estate. Boudicca lead the Iceni in a revolt and was eventually defeated, but not before looting and destroying Colchester, London and St Albans. Engraving from "Le Costume Ancien ou Moderne" (Jules Ferraria 1820).
