She led a rebellion against the Roman Empire in 60-61 AD, after her husband's death and the Romans' attempt to annex Iceni territory. Boudicca's leadership and the Iceni tribe's participation in the revolt are well-documented, making the Iceni the correct answer.

    Explanation
    Boudicca did not sack the Roman settlement of Trinovantes. Trinovantes was a tribe in pre-Roman Britain, and it is not mentioned in historical records that Boudicca attacked or sacked their settlement. Boudicca is famously known for leading an uprising against the Roman Empire in AD 60-61, during which she successfully sacked and destroyed the Roman settlements of Londinium (modern-day London), Camulodunum (modern-day Colchester), and Verulium (modern-day St Albans). However, Trinovantes is not associated with any recorded attacks by Boudicca.
