Brigantia: Chief goddess of the Brigantes in the north of England

Brigantia is a triple goddess who's name means "Queen" or "High One". She was the chief goddess of the Brigantes in the north of England (Yorkshire).

She is a goddess of water, war, prosperity and healing. She was widely revered in the Celtic world, but under different names in different areas. She is probably the same goddess the Irish called Brigid and the Gauls called Brigindo.

The rivers Braint and Brent is called after Brigantia. Her prosperity aspects are often associated with flocks and cattle. Her face was placed on coinage in 1667 by Charles I, where it can be seen to this day.
