Born in Scotland of the tribe Venicones, or Venet, (map).

Venicones was a Celtic tribe that was located in Fife (now in Scotland) and on both banks of the Tay. They were bordered by the Taexali to the north, the Caledonii to the west (perhaps the original tribe of that name into which was lumped all the other western tribes by Roman writers), the Epidii to the south-west, and the Damnonii and Votadini to the south. Unfortunately for the Venicones, they occupied the very region that the Romans needed to invade several times in order to quell attacks by Britons (Picts) in the east of the Highlands, including attacks by the 'Pictish navy'. A legionary fortress was built at Inchtuthill, Tayside (Pinnata Castra), which remained occupied during the late first century by the Twentieth Legion Valeria.[1]

Through merges or whatever, the parents of Tacitus, Verch Genedawc-1 and Aberffraw-2, are shown as being born in the 800s. I am disconnecting them.
