View Full Version : Queen Bodecia

I just finished viewing the PBS Masterpiece Theatre Jane Eyre. At some point later in the show, Rochester makes an angry statement about Queen Bodecia.
Can anyone tell me where this specifically appears in the book?

chapter 22, Rochester speaking, “You must see the carriage, Jane, and tell me if you don't think it will suit Mrs. Rochester exactly; and whether she will not look like Queen Boadicea,”
The reference is to Boadicea who led the Iceni of east Anglia in revolt against the Romans in 63 AD.
