Cunobelinus Rex bronze unit
By c.AD10 Cunobelinus, ‘hound of Belenus’, son of Tasciovanos and Cymbeline of Shakespeare, had united the Catuvellauni and Trinovantes. By AD 43 his family had control of the Cantiaci, Atrebates and Regini, and influence with the Dobunni and Iceni and possibly the Corieltauvi also. Suetonius (Caligula 44) called Cunobelinus ‘Britannorum rex’.
