The Trinovantes or Trinobantes were one of the tribes that lived in pre-Roman Britain. Their territory was on the north side of the Thames estuary. Before Julius Caesar's invasion of Britain in 55 and 54 BC, the Trinovantes were considered the most powerful tribe in Britain.

From numismatic evidence we know that Addedomarus was king of the Trinovantes. He was the first king to produce inscribed coins north of the Thames. He moved the tribe's capital from Braughing in Hertfordshire to Camulodunum (Colchester, Essex). For a brief time, around 10 BC Tasciovanus of the Catuvellauni issued coins from Camulodunum, which suggests he had conquered the Trinovantes, but later coins of Tasciovanus no longer bear the inscripion of "Rex".

The Trinovantes cooperated with the Romans until the loss of tribal territory to Roman settlers caused them to participate in the Iceni revolt under Boudicca (Boadicea).
