The first century AD was turbulent. Rome governed most of the kwn world, and in Britain a Roman goverr struggled to control the many war-like tribes. Out of this tumult, we meet two tribal queens of different temperaments, each fated for a different destiny. The strong personalities of Cartimandua and Boudicca are based on recorded history and bring a long past era to life. When Queen Boudicca falls foul of greedy and callous Roman officials, she suffers the terrible consequences of the time. Her terrible anger and thirst for revenge leads to a cataclysmic revolution. Leading an army of 100,000 she burns many cities, including London. Excitement is generated among the Britons when at first she seems to vanquish their oppressors, but this does t last as the military goverr manages to defeat her mighty army.
