Boudicca - Queen of the Iceni Celts under Roman rule. When her husband, King Prasutagus, died in 60AD, the Romans reneged on an earlier agreement & demanded Boudicca hand over her land & wealth. She refused & the Romans beat her & raped her daughters. In turn, Boudicca amassed & led a force of 100,000 warriors against the Roman army & very nearly defeated them... her army sacked London and held the Romans at bay for over 6 months... longer than any other military leader ever...
