Boudicca (also known as Boadicea) of the British Celtic Iceni tribe of East Anglia (Eastern England) led a rebellion against the Roman army in 60 CE after being flogged in the streets and her daughters raped. They successfully defeated (destroyed perhaps is more like it) 3 settlements — not taking prisoners but slaughtering anyone left behind (a total of almost 80,000 people)
