He was born around 406 AD, probably in Pannonia, a region that corresponds to modern-day Hungary and parts of Austria, Slovakia, and Croatia. He was the son of Mundzuk, a Hunnic nobleman and a descendant of the royal house of the Huns. He had a brother named Bleda, with whom he shared power for a decade.
Attila and Bleda inherited the Hunnic Empire from their uncle Ruga, who died in 434. The empire stretched from Germany to the Ural River and from the Danube River to the Baltic Sea. It was composed of various nomadic tribes who paid tribute and provided warriors to the Huns. Attila and Bleda maintained good relations with each other and with their subjects, but they also expanded their influence through diplomacy and war.
One of their main targets was the Roman Empire, which was divided into two halves: the Eastern Roman Empire, also known as Byzantium, and the Western Roman Empire. The Huns had been raiding and extorting the Romans for decades, and Attila and Bleda continued this policy. They demanded annual payments of gold from the Eastern Roman Emperor Theodosius II, who agreed to pay them 700 pounds of gold per year in exchange for peace.Attila's invasion of Gaul was one of his most ambitious and daring campaigns. He had several reasons for attacking Gaul: he wanted to plunder its rich lands, he wanted to expand his empire westward, and he wanted to marry Honoria, the sister of the Western Roman Emperor Valentinian III, who had sent him a ring and a plea for help. Attila claimed that Honoria was his lawful wife and demanded half of the Western Roman Empire as her dowry.
In the spring of 451, Attila crossed the Rhine with an army of about 200,000 warriors, composed of Huns and various Germanic and Alan tribes. He sacked and burned many cities along his way, such as Metz, Reims, Amiens, and Arras. He also besieged Orleans, a strategic city that controlled the Loire River. However, he was unable to take the city before the arrival of a relief force led by Aetius, the Roman general who had once been his ally and friend.
Aetius had gathered a coalition of Romans and barbarians to oppose Attila. He had persuaded the Visigoths, led by their king Theodoric I, to join him, as well as the Franks, the Burgundians, and the Alans. Aetius and his allies met Attila and his army near ChÃlons-en-Champagne, in a place called the Catalaunian Plains. The battle that ensued was one of the bloodiest and most decisive in history. 248dff8e21
