Quick Reference

Young son of Imanventius, king of the Trinovantes, fled to Gaul when his father was killed by Cassivellaunus, and sought Caesar's protection. He was reinstated when Caesar invaded Britain in 54 bc. He is identified in Caesar's De Bello Gallico, but it has been suggested that Celtic sources give his name as Avarwy, the Roman version being a nickname meaning ‘the black traitor’.
