Artist's Description

Thomas Thornycroft’s statue of Boadicea (or Boudica) and her daughters stands beside the Thames River in London, near Westminster Pier.

Boadicea was queen of the Iceni tribe in the area now known as East Anglia. After the death of her husband and the subsequent treatment of her people by the occupying Romans forces she lead a revolt in AD60 – AD61. The crisis caused by her action caused the then emperor Nero to consider withdrawing all Roman forces from the island. Boadicea’s troops were eventually defeated by a smaller Roman army, led by Gaius Suetonius Paulinus, which secured Roman control of the province. Boadicea then poisoned herself so she would not be captured.

Although defeated her spirit lives on…

Can’t help but think what she would have to say if she could see her homeland now……
