Meaning & History

Baduhenna was a minor goddess worshipped in ancient Frisia. According to Tacitus, a sacred grove was dedicated to her near which 900 Roman soldiers were killed in 28 CE. Her name is likely derived from Proto-Germanic *badwa- "battle" and -henna, a name element which appears in the names of matrons, Germanic goddesses widely attested from the 1st to 5th century CE on votive stones and votive altars.
