I'm talking about major figures like Viriatus for Lutetia, Mithridates of Pontus, Vercingetorix of Gaul, Decebalus of Dacia etc

I'm fascinated by such figures. Surely there were many more. Can you tell me the most significant pre-Roman rulers for these regions?

Viriathus was for some years the leader of the Lusitanians in the West of the Iberian Peninsula, and he was allied with other peoples. Lutetia was the name of a city where is now Paris.

Before and after there were other Lusitanian leaders, warlords, that made war against Rome, but we don't know much about them. Some like Caucenus, Punicus and Tautalus we know the name and just some minor details.
