Aedui - Authority in Federation from Before 6th century BC to After 50 AD
The Aedui were a Gallic people of Gallia Lugdunensis, who inhabited the country between the Arar (Saône) and Liger (Loire), in today's France.

The Aedui, like other powerful tribes in the region had replaced their monarchy with a council of magistrates called grand-judges. The grand-judges were under the authority of the senate. The senate was made up of the descendants of ancient royal families. Free men in the tribes were vassals to the heads of these families in exchange for military, financial and political interests.

The Aedui struck coins during a relatively narrow timespan, from around 100 BC and until the conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar. They generally copied Roman types.
