Attila, often referred to as Attila the Hun, was the ruler of the Huns from 434 until his death in 453. He was leader of the Hunnic Empire, which stretched from the Ural River to the Rhine River and from the Danube River to the Baltic Sea.
He was one of the most feared enemies of the Western and Eastern Roman Empires. He crossed the Danube twice and plundered the Balkans, but was unable to capture Constantinople. He attempted to conquer Gaul (modern France), crossing the Rhine in 451 and marching as far as Aurelianum (Orléans) before being defeated at the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains. Subsequently he invaded Italy, plundering the northern provinces, but was unable to take Rome. He planned for further campaigns against the Romans but died in 453.
Herbert’s Attila, King of the Huns and His Predecessors is an expansive history of the Huns, their origins, and Attila’s conquests. A table of contents is included for easier reference.
