Boudica was one of the Damned which Dante must punish or absolve for "The Damned" achievement/trophy. She was encountered in the circle of Anger.

Description Edit

Boudica was the queen of the Iceni tribe of British Celts. Her husband allied himself with the Roman Empire prior to the conquest of Britannia by the Emperor Claudius. Despite their alliance with the Romans, upon her husband's death Boudica was flogged and her children were brutally raped. In retaliation the vengeful queen of the Iceni attempted to free her people from the Roman Empire, starting a bloody rebellion against the Emperor Nero. The Celts ravaged several towns including Londinium (London), numbering hundreds of thousands strong. She devastated the countryside until the Romans finally stopped her at the Battle of Watling Street. Despite the vast numbers of her army, the Roman's strategic skill and military training soundly defeated the Iceni. In an attempt to avoid capture, Boudica committed suicide.

Trivia Edit

  • Interestingly, despite committing suicide she resides in the banks of the Styx, whereas suicides are condemned to Wood of the Suicides in Violence. This is likely due to her extreme fury against the Romans for what they had done to her and her people.
