In 16 days Claudius received five salutations and received the submission of 11 British rulers before returning to Rome where the Senate awarded him a triumph and the title Britannicus. The capital of the great Cunobelinus now became the capital of Rome’s newest province, and Aulus Plautius its first governor. British Client Kings While Caratacus was rallying support in western Britain, it is interesting to see the political moves of the other powerful British rulers. Cartimandua (her name means ‘sleek filly’), queen of the Brigantes, made an early alliance with Rome.

Two of his sons, Togodumnus and Caratacus, joined forces to extend Catuvellaunian power at the expense of pro-Roman rulers. While the elder brother consolidated his power north of the Thames (including a western extension into Dobunnic territory), Caratacus, with the assistance of western Britons like the Durotriges, deposed Verica and seized control of the lands of the Atrebates and the Cantiaci.

Scapula suffered serious losses to his forces, then died prematurely in Britain in 52. Aulus Didius, the new governor, faced in addition to the hostilities of the Welsh tribes the rebellion of Venutius against Cartimandua. Didius went to Cartimandua’s aid and held his ground in southern Wales, founding a few new forts.
