Factual error: Catus Decianus actually managed to escape from the massacre at Camulodunum and fled to Gaul.

Factual error: The dating of events is out. Claudius died in AD54, Agrippina was murdered (by Nero's soldiers, not by Nero himself) in AD59, Prasutagus died in AD60, the revolt began soon afterwards and ended in AD61, Nero did not marry Poppaea until AD62.

Factual error: Suetonius rushed straight from Anglesey to quell Boudica's revolt. He didn't go to Rome first - that would have taken weeks.
