Description - Cartimandua by Nicki Howarth
This is the first major study of Cartimandua, Queen of the Brigantes, whose story is one of rebellion, intrigue, betrayal and scandal. A contemporary of the much more famous Boudica, Cartimandua chose to support Roman rule rather than to rebel - indeed she was accused of betraying the rebel Caratacus to the Romans. As a result she was awarded great wealth and held her position as queen until AD 69 when the husband she had divorced forced her into exile on his second attempt to take back control of the tribe. This is a unique look at a fascinating yet often overlooked figure of British history and at the world in which she lived and the influences that shaped the turbulent events in her life.
