Historical background


GALLIA BELGICA - SUESSIONES (Area of Soissons)

(2nd - 1st century BC)

The Suessions were an important people of the Belgians, confined on the Aisne in the territory of the province of Soissonnais. They had for neighbor the Remi, the Lingones, the Senones, the Parisii, the Bellovaci and the Ambiens.. According to Caesar, the two peoples Remes and Suessions, before the Gallic Wars, had the same laws and the same leaders. They had for customers the Meldes, the Silvanectes and the Viromanduens. Diviciacos, one of their kings, would have reigned as far as Brittany. Galba, his successor, commanded the coalition of rebel Belgians in 57 BC. -VS. with a contingent of fifty thousand men. The Suessions and their Bellovaci allies were defeated. Galba had to deliver his two sons as hostages to the Romans. They provided a contingent of five thousand men for the relief army in 52 BC. -VS. They were placed under the authority of the Remes after this date. In 51 BC. -VS. , the members of the Belgian coalition were to first attack the Suessions. Ruled by Corréos and Commios, the Belgic peoples were finally crushed by the Romans. Their main oppidum was Noviodunum (Soissons). Caesar (BG. II, 3, 4, 12, 13; VI, 35; VII, 75; VIII, 6). Kruta: 69.
