Biography

Diviciacus or Divitiacus was a king of the Belgic nation of the Suessiones in the early 1st century BC. Julius Caesar, writing in the mid-1st century BC, says that he had within living memory been the most powerful king in Gaul, ruling a large portion not only of Gallia Belgica, but also of Britain.

Since it is likely that Diviciacus spent at least a part of his life in Britain, he may be considered the earliest inhabitant of the British Isles whose name has come down from antiquity.

He should not be confused with his namesake Diviciacus of the Aedui.
