Who was Tasciovanus?

Tasciovanus was King of the Celtic Catuvellauni tribe who ruled area of southeastern Britain covering parts of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire before the Roman conquest. From around the year 20 BC Tasciovanus ruled from Verlamion (St Albans), inscibing his coins with a 'VER' mint mark. His victories over the neighbouring Trinovantes are evidenced by coinage issued from Camulodunum (Colchester). Later coinage uses the Welsh/Gaelic title 'RICON', usually translated as 'King', rather than the Latin 'Rex', suggesting that Tasciovanus did not have a treaty with Rome. He was succeeded in around the year 10 AD by his son Cunobeline.
