Brigantia was the presiding spirit of the Brigantes, the most populous Celtic tribe of Britain. They ruled a broad swathe of Northern England and the Midlands with their capital at York. Brigantia’s name is usually interpreted as Queen. The Romans identified her with Minerva and Victoria. She is generally considered to be the same spirit as Brigid and the Gaulish Brigindo.
