Bellovaki ( lat. Bellovaci  ) - a tribe of belgs that lived between the Somme , Seine and Oise . Their main settlements are Bratuspantium and Caesaromagus (modern Beauvais ). The Belloves showed fierce resistance to the Romans until 52 BC, also after Caesar's retreat from Gaul . Only in 46 BC e. Brutus managed to break their resistance.
The bellows had the glory of a warlike tribe. When a pan-Galli militia was formed at the request of Vercingetorig and each community exerted a certain contingent of soldiers, the Belovaki refused this, saying that they did not want to submit to anyone's power, but would wage war on the Romans on their own. And indeed, of all the Gallic communities that had not yet taken a direct part in the uprising, the Bellows were the most dangerous adversary.
