    More Information:

    "The tragedy is based on the story of Boadicea as given in Holinshed but the principal character is her cousin, the wise, patriotic, chivalrous, and battle-hardened Caratach whose counsel to the vainglorious and impetuous Bonduca is disastrously ignored." {OCEL]" Bonduca, 1647, produced some time before Burbage's death (March 1618-19), presents in the person of Caratach a worthy portrait of a magnanimous soldier; and the frank, fearless boy Hengo, nephew of Caratach, is sketched with loving tenderness. An alteration of Bonduca was produced and published in 1696; another, by the elder Colman, was acted at the Haymarket and published in 1778; a third, by J. R. Planche (entitled Caractacus), was performed at Drury Lane in 1837." DNB ESTC t22963.
