Overview[]

Aremorica[]

Armorica or Aremorica is the name given in ancient times to the part of Gaul between the Seine and the Loire that includes the Brittany Peninsula, extending inland to an indeterminate point and down the Atlantic Coast.

Pliny the Elder, in his Natural History, claims that Armorica was the older name for Aquitania and states Armorica's southern boundary extended to the Pyrenees. Taking into account the Gaulish origin of the name, that is perfectly correct and logical, as Aremorica is not a country name but a word that describes a type of geographical region, one that is by the sea. Pliny lists the following Celtic tribes as living in the area: the Aedui and Carnuteni as having treaties with Rome; the Meldi and Secusiani as having some measure of independence; and the Boii, Senones, Aulerci (both the Eburovices and Cenomani), the Parisii, Tricasses, Andicavi, Viducasses, Bodiocasses, Veneti, Coriosvelites, Diablinti, Rhedones, Turones, and the Atseui.

Viridovix[]

Viridovix was a Celtic chieftain who lived in the 1st century BC. He was known for his military prowess and strategic thinking, and was a key figure in the resistance of the Celtic tribes against the Roman conquest of Gaul.

Viridovix was born in the region of Gaul that is now modern-day France. He was a member of the Aedui tribe, which was one of the most powerful and influential Celtic tribes in Gaul at the time. Viridovix rose to prominence as a military leader, leading successful campaigns against other Celtic tribes as well as against the Romans.

The Romans, who were expanding their empire into Gaul at the time, saw Viridovix as a major threat to their ambitions. In 52 BC, the Roman general Julius Caesar launched a campaign against the Aedui, and Viridovix played a key role in the defense of his tribe. Despite being outnumbered and outgunned, Viridovix and the Aedui were able to hold off the Romans for several months before being ultimately defeated.

Despite his defeat, Viridovix's reputation as a formidable military leader and strategist continued to grow. He became a symbol of resistance against Roman rule, and his legend inspired other Celtic tribes to rise up against the invaders.

Today, Viridovix is remembered as a hero of the Celtic people and a symbol of their struggle against Roman domination. His legacy lives on in the histories and traditions of the Celtic nations, and he remains a revered figure in the region.

Dawn of Man[]

Hail to you, Viridovix, chief of the Unelli! The tribes of Aremorica have always been a force to be reckoned with on the seas, allowing the Aremoricans to resist Roman rule and assert their independence. But it is not only your naval prowess that makes the Aremoricans great. You have flourished in a land of coastal rocks and rolling hills, and with fierce warrior spirit and a keen intellect, with shrieking bards and boiling pots, the tribes of Aremorica have long dominated the seas.
