Boudica

Queen of a Celtic tribe, Boudica didn’t exactly lie down quietly and sit on her bum after her husband died and Roman soldiers had their way with her and her daughters. Probably the earliest inspiration for those Lifetime movies where the woman goes all vigilante ass-kicker, Boudica and her tribe destroyed several Roman settlements and temples. As her forces grew, she went on to destroy three cities and kill nearly 80,000 people; sparing nobody. With all that pillaging and razing it’s no surprise that Boudica’s name means “victory.”
