Attila the Hun was born in 406, and much of his life was known as the king of the Huns. In his youth he lived at the court of Ravenna, as a hostage. His presence was a guarantee that the Huns led by his uncle will not attack the Western Roman Empire.


Attila was Khan of the Huns. He is remembered as the epitome of cruelty and rapacity.He passed unhindered through Austria and Germany, across the Rhine 

An account of Attila the Hun's reign of terror across Europe in the fifth century. This ruthless king of a nomadic Asiatic race murdered his brother before embarking on a campaign of slaughter and pillage through 100 cities which took him to the gates of Constantinople, Troyes in Gaul and even Rome itself, threatening the civilised world of the Roman Empire and plunging huge swathes of the continent once more into the barbarity of the Dark Ages.

Together with his brother Bleda continued its policy of unifying the tribes Hune, policy begun by Rua. However, he never failed to control all the tribes Hune. The new kingdom over which he reigned since 434, with his brother, comprised heterogeneous population, stretching from the Caucasus to the Rhine. In 445, Bleda was killed in command of Attila, and afterwards the political center of his control formation was established in Tisa.

  Hello,

    I'm working on a theory for some time in trying to combine science with religion, looking for an answer to the question 
"What is the purpose of life in Creation?  Is it possible for life to be an unintended consequence of our Universe?

Finally due to space,science and exploration throughout the Universe we got everyone to agree with the fact that we are not the only planet with life.  My blog is full of interesting articles about Creation of the Universe with all his laws,  NASA's Missions,  History,   Science,  Physics, Health, Nature, Ancient origins and Culture.
