this is a quickie, because I can't find any reliable biographical details for Boudicca and I'm too lazy to go looking all over the internet all day, I'm going to delve into historical mythology and speculation involving the Trojan army helped by the Ukranian 'amazon' female warriors.
This also refers to the legend of Dungi king of Ur who married his daughters into various territories over which they ruled.
My suspicion is that Boudica (spell it however you want) was one of these AMAZON-like Ukranian warrior women sold by any number of easter-European kings to any number of Ancient British tribal kings, like Prasutagus ruler of the Icenii. She has the warriorlike quality. She has the ginge.
I suspect, and this is only a suspicion, that WOMEN used to be the banner-wielding war-maidens of ancient days – the most recent, of course, being Joan of Arc. I think, way back in macho-war history, there must have been something rather satisfying about having a woman lead a pack of painted warriors into bloody battle.
Gah, there you go…
