Giovanni Calcagno as Vercingetorix in the series "Rome"
Vercingetorix – the leader of the Gauls’ uprising against Rome, was probably known among his own under a completely different name that has not survived to this day.
Vercingetorix is a cluster of words Uer, Cingeto and Rix, which when combined can be translated as great warriors or the greatest among warriors, and therefore their king. Under this name, he went down in history.
