Two Queens of Roman Britain (Could they have met one another?)



Two queens of Roman Britain. One a monumental failure that screams out in eternity. The other is successful but fades into forever - only to be forgotten. The Roman Empire wrote wonderful records of their victories, but scarcely mentioned their friends.


Boudicca built her glorious reputation on a gigantic failure that left thousands upon thousands dead. While Queen Cartimandua played the game of client queen for over twenty six years. The successful Queen of the Brigantes is lost to the British people while Boudicca’s granddisaster echoes in eternity.
