If it was a RIS, you could have just named it "The Czar".

That's pretty cool, if I ever get around to 2C, I'll bear it in mind! Unfortunately, my first RIS didn't work very well (was my second extract brew, and was meant to be a form of chocolate stout. Shabbily, the chocolate aftertaste was overwhelming) and so I don't get to call my beer Boris

They did, and they did (so we're told) and he promptly converted to Christianity (and in doing so, converted the entire empire). Or so we're told. Locally. I'm sure there are thirty thousand claimants to his conversion though! And Wikipedia, for what it's worth, doesn't mention this battle at York as being his turning point in the article about him.
Anyway, the local brewery already has a brew called Constantine, and damn nice it is too!
Thanks for the suggestion, but I feel Capone is more booze-related (the Romans preferred wine and thought of beer as a drink for the prols.... hmmm wait, that's still true here!)
You know history has many versions...not necessarily any of them true, but the way I remember it is he didn't convert personally until just before he died.

Too bad I didn't think of Constantine over Caesar...I always think of Constantinoble and since I have Greek (who are dark headed used to be blonds before intermarrying with the Turks) and Turk friends...I always lean toward the Turk side even though he was pre-Byzantium...the brain's kind of fried sometimes... I visited a couple of Byzantium fortress ruins in Greece once...

How about the Dalton Gang or Dillinger for the Ds?

Are you thinking Ned Kelly for Ns? From wiki: In 1869, the 14-year-old Ned Kelly was arrested for assaulting a Chinese pig farmer named Ah Fook.[8] Ah Fook claimed that he had been robbed by Ned, who stated that Ah Fook had a row with his sister Annie. Kelly spent ten days in custody before the charges were dismissed. From then on the police regarded him as a "juvenile bushranger".

"Ned's Ah Fook's Pig" sounds too dirty so it's cool...HAHAA!! or Ned Kelly's "Bushranger" ?

Not exactly Yorkshire, but the Carvetii were the Britons who lived in Cumbria and North Lancs. ca. 10AD. Scholars think their capital was Luguvalium, er, I mean Carlisle.



D could be named for the Durotriges, who inhabited a wide range, from Dorset to Somerset and Wiltshire.

Too bad you missed 'Bouddica' for B!

Haven't exactly missed B, it just turned out pants! It may well be that I try it again at some point in the future and try and balance it out a bit. So Bouddica it will probably be. Not sure about calling D Dillinger, I don't want it to escape!
