Boudica, Queen of the Iceni, circa 60 AD
I am descended from mighty men! But now I am not fighting for my kingdom and my wealth. I am fighting as an ordinary person for my lost freedom, my bruised body and my outraged daughters Consider how many of you are fighting and why. Then you will win this battle, or perish. That is what I, a woman, plan to do! Let the men live in slavery if they will.
