Brigantes

The Brigantes was probably the largest tribe in Celtic Britain, though compromising a loose federation rather than a centralised community. They occupied most of modern-day England north of the Mersey and the Humber. Their chief settlement was initially at Isurium and later Eboracum (York). Their queen Cartimandua, who reigned about 50-70AD was responsible for turning the fugitive Caratacus over to the Romans, but the Brigantes were to prove unreliable subjects of Rome for the next 100 years.
