Luverly of the Week: Boadicea Haranguing the Britons by John Opie

Boudicca, Queen of the Iceni was also a warrior who led her people in a revolt against the invading Romans. Her rebellion was one of great courage and anger, but was ultimately unsuccessful in the end.

Regardless, she is a symbol of inspiration for those who fight against tyranny and is a reminder never to mess with a mother's children. She was definitely a force to be reckoned with!
