Life in the turbulent 1st century AD. Rome invades Britain and after the Romans seize Boudicca's land and wealthy, she raises a vast army. They raze Camulodunum and then Londinium before the military governor, Suetonius defeats her and takes the lives of 80,000 Britons in the bloodiest battle ever fought on British soil.

Boudicca suffered cruelly at the hands of the Romans yet not one of her own subjects stepped forward to save her. The two officials, angry with her spitting in their faces, decided to teach her a lesson.

"Take her," the commander ordered, "tie her to that post."

She fought as hard as she could but they were too strong for her and soon she was bound by her arms to the pillar. "Strip her!" he ordered.

"Don't you dare lay another hand on me, you bastards," she yelled as two soldiers moved toward her, hands outstretched. She screamed and cursed to no avail and they stripped her to the waist. How she tried to hide herself, how she called on her gods to save her from these cruel men.

The commander watched and listened to her appeals, her prayers, her yells for assistance, his expression one of enjoying the entertainment. Smiling, he ordered her beaten.

"This,my lady," he called, "will teach you who rules the Iceni now."

"Never will you rule my tuath, never while I draw breath."

"Allow me to help you take that last breath." He nodded and the scourge hit her back.
