in ancient Rome, Rome expanded outward and conquered many countries. However, due to cultural differences and political oppression, there were also large and small uprisings in Rome. Speaking of the uprising, Rome’s most famous must be the Spartacus uprising, because this uprising had a great impact on Rome. In the northwest corner of Europe, there was also an uprising on the Roman ruled British Islands. The reason for this uprising was a rape. Although it failed in the end, it also shook the rule of Rome on the British island. Now let’s see what it is.
in ancient England, England was occupied by different local tribes, not a whole country. Aisini is one of the more powerful tribes. The kingdom of aisini is located in the area of Norfolk, England. It can also be said that aisini people are the ancestors of British people. In AD 43, the powerful Roman Legion set foot on the British islands and began to conquer the tribes on the southeast British Islands. The isini tribe is one of them. However, because the major tribes were not united at that time, the war was soon settled and Southeast Britain was conquered. However, in order not to be exterminated, the isini Kingdom has nominally reached an alliance with Rome and maintained its independence.
aisini’s tribal leader at that time was prasutagus. At that time, he said in his will that he would give part of his land to Rome and part to his daughter to obtain the independence of the kingdom. At that time, the emperor of Rome was Nero Claudius, the most famous tyrant in Roman history. Of course, the will of the leader isini was directly ignored. Nero ordered Rome to directly annex all the land of isini, humiliated and violently beat the leader’s wife budica and raped the leader’s two daughters. Budika saw with her own eyes that her two beloved daughters had been ruined and that she herself had been ruined, so the flame of the uprising was burning in budika’s heart. Shortly after
annexed the land of isini in Rome, the local Roman governor Gaius Suetonius was sent to Mora island to launch a new war of aggression. When the Roman army left, the city defense was low, and budica knew that now was the best time for the uprising.
budika united with the remnants of their old neighbor trinovente tribe to launch an uprising. The rebels quickly invaded Colchester, slaughtered Colchester, killed all the residents of Colchester who could not escape, and burned the whole city. Then budika and her rebels marched in the direction of lundinian, who is now lundinian. Dun. At this time, the governor Gaius Suetonius, who got the news, found that the troops could not reach lundinian ahead of budica, so he immediately made a decision to let the leading troops move forward lightly and quickly to lundinian. With the advance speed of the vanguard forces, Gaius Suetonius succeeded in catching up with his vanguard forces in front of the budica rebels to lundinian.
Gaius Suetonius realized that he did not have enough troops to fight the rebel army in budica, so he ordered to evacuate the crowd and burn down the whole city without leaving any supplies to the rebel army. When the rebel army of budica came to lundinian and found that most of the city was burning, she knew that the Romans were destroying supplies and evacuating the crowd. Budika again without hesitation ordered the rebels to rush into the city and kill all those who had not yet had time to evacuate. In the course of this massacre, in order to retaliate against the Romans, budica also ordered the Roman women in the city to be soldiers and trample them casually. So there were atrocities everywhere in the city, like when the Romans ravaged her and her daughter.
after the massacre of lundinian, there were about hundreds of thousands of people in budika’s uprising army. In the following days, budika successfully captured verulamia, now Alban in Britain. This was originally the place where the catuvironi lived. It was the first tribe to yield to the Romans when Rome invaded Britain and was legalized by Rome. Therefore, the local British people and Romans were persecuted. At this stage of the
uprising, budica and her uprising army have destroyed Rome’s three main cities in Britain. In addition, there are countless Roman fortresses, large and small. At that time, the total death toll of the Romans and the Britons who succumbed to the Romans has exceeded 70000. However, at this time, budika, completely swallowed up by the anger of revenge, did not notice that the harvest deadline of their own food had come, and the rebels blindly wanted to get the Roman reserves. However, the Romans burned all their food reserves almost every time they fled or prepared for war, and there was no doubt that budica’s army was in famine. In the mixed rebel army, compared with the Roman army, there was a serious lack of discipline, and the phenomenon of internal fighting and desertion soon appeared.
and at this time Gaius Suetonius had assembled all his troops, including a detachment of the ninth, fourteenth and twentieth legions, with a total of about 10000 people. Gaius Suetonius ordered the establishment of a military base in an easy to defend and difficult to attack terrain nearby, and the food reserves were very rich. When budika got the news, she was very excited. She naively believed that he had about 10 times more military strength than the Roman army. How could he win the Roman military base, not only get sufficient supplies, but also defeat the main Roman Legion on on the British island at that time, so budica did not hesitate to order the rebel army to attack the Roman military base.
war broke out. The terrain chosen by the Romans was the hillside protected by many large rocks. The Roman soldiers orderly protected the attack of the rebel army, standing on the rocks and throwing spears at the charging rebel soldiers. In the rebel armyIn the case of famine, the soldiers are hungry and weak, and often expose their flaws. The rebel army of budica was defeated like a mountain, and the Romans launched a counterattack. At this time, the rebel army had no intention of war, and the whole army completely collapsed. Although there was a great difference in the proportion of people in this war, the Romans won at the least cost. According to records, only 400 Romans died in this war, while nearly 8W insurgents died.
after this battle, budika was clearly aware of the situation of defeat, and soon took poison and committed suicide. After budika died, she was buried. Then the Roman army harvested the remnants of the rebellion and began to rule southeast Britain for nearly 400 years.
