Prasutagus was the king of the Iceni in Norfolk in Roman Britain during the 1st century. He was the husband of Boudica, with whom he had two daughters.

Following the conquest of Britain by the Roman Empire in 43, Prasutagus was one of several tribal rulers in Britain who were bought off by the Romans. After Prasutagus' death, he left half of his kingdom to the Roman Emperor Nero and the other half to his daughters. Boudicca became the Queen of the Iceni. However, the Emperor annexed the entire kingdom. When Boudicca objected, she was flogged and her daughters were raped in public. This resulted in Boudicca leading a failed revolt against the occupying Roman forces in 60. (AUDIO: The Wrath of the Iceni)
