Caractacus, or Caradoc, king of the ancient Britons, fought against the Romans during the period 43 to 50 A.D. At length overcome, he fled to Cartismandua, Queen of the Brigantes, who betrayed him; and in 51 A.D. he was led in triumph through Rome by the Emperor Claudius. His dignified demeanour so impressed the emperor that he was pardoned, but according to tradition died at Rome 54 A.D.
