The search for Benjamin's ideal consort took some time.  

Ben had washed up on a foreign shore, unconscious, helpless; and he must be found by people who lived in what is now England during the First Century around 60AD.

Research revealed that those people must be among the notorious, constantly warring Celts who probably considered Ben strange, perhaps, even hostile, given their experience with Romans and others who had come from the mainland to occupy their native land.  And those Celts must have had tribal leaders, Chiefs, or even Kings.

I had a hunch. I found a site with information on famous leaders in antiquity; and there SHE was, standing beside Cleopatra: BOUDICA, the Warrior Queen of the Iceni Celts--the leader of one of a score or more of tribes that constituted the Briton Celt culture!  

Then I found her statue, in modern day Westminster.  It depicts Boudica, the Warrior Queen of the Iceni, in a captured Roman War Chariot--holding her spear.  Her two daughters are with her, both genuine as well, and mentioned in Roman histories.

It was perfect!

The narrative could move forward, and the word "constituted" would be repeated in a different form in a legacy of undying hope for fulfillment of an eternally begotten dream.
