Annotation

When Bravura the female bard comes from Lucretia to take over the Gaulish school, she causes all the men in town to leave in anger, but when the Romans show up with a secret weapon, the two sides work together to foil their plans.

Summary

  • A woman bard in Ancient Gaul? A shocking idea, but that's what the Gauls get when the mothers in Asterix's village hire Bravura to teach their children. Although she, Asterix and Obelix are unlikely allies, between them they fight back against Julius Caesar's secret weapon. What can that weapon be? And how can even Cacofonix help?
  • A woman bard? That’s unheard of in Ancient Gaul. So when the mothers in Asterix’s town want to replace Cacofonix with Bravura, the men are horrified. But Bravura hits the right notes musically, and she proves very valuable when Julius Caesar sends in his secret weapon: a group of female legionaries. Caesar thinks the Gauls will be too noble to fight the women...but Bravura has no such scruples! And even Cacofonix succeeds in coming into his own.
