Attila the Hun
Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
Monarch
    (405-453)
    Given leadership of the newly united Hun tribes by his uncle, King Rua (432)
    Gained complete control of the Huns after the death of his brother Bleda (445)
    Invaded the Balkans (441)
    Invaded and captured Gaul, only to divert into Italy after defeat at the Battle of Chalons (452)
    One of the best-known Barbarians in history
    He personified the word 'Barbarian' in appearance and custom.
    He most likely murdered his brother in order to end the dual monarchy of the Hun Empire.
    He burned down cities which took years to develop and plundered them of wealth and riches.
    His spiteful wife once served him the meat of his sons under the guise it was the meat of a small animal.
    After he made himself well-known throughout Europe as the Barbarian invader from Germany, the term 'Huns' became a derogatory term for Germans during World War I and World War II, even though the Huns were not German at all. They were actually Turkic nomads that ventured into Europe due to limited expansion opportunities in the East.
    He had the opportunity to sack Rome, but Christians claim he didn't because Pope Leo I made him see the light. Even though a more plausible reason is that it was almost winter and he wanted to go back home, knowing Rome would take months to sack.
    Despite being history's revered bad ass, he died of a nose bleed that suffocated him on his wedding night. (453).
    He was the first Barbarian King ever to be able to attack Roman interests with so much success.
    He used military tactics borrowed from the Romans, the Germanic tribes and his own Hun tribe successfully.
    He made a strong impression on European history.
