a chieftain of the Arverni. He was the leader of the great revolt against the Romans in 52 B.C.
He defeated the Gallic relieving force and took the fortress.
Vercingetorix was captured. The brave old warrior was led captive back to rome where he rotted in a dungeon for several years.


"I did not undertake the war for private ends,
but in the cause of national liberty.
And since I must now accept my fate,
I place myself at your disposal.
Make amends to the Romans by killing me
or surrender me alive as you think best."

[Caesar,quoting Vercingetorix]
