You built an SPQR-icon empire beyond imagining. The pinnacle of human achievement and the envy of the world. Did you think it would last? Rome-icon The eternal city. That glorious monument to Macedon-icon power, Ancient Greece-icon culture, and Ptolemaic Egypt-icon learning. But the Western Roman Empire-icon Old Wolf lies wounded by Goths-icon jackals; circled by Sassanid-icon vultures. Worried to death by Angles-iconSaxons-iconFrancia-icon a thousand tiny vicious mouths— Visigothic Kingdom-iconOstrogothic Kingdom-iconVandal Kingdom-icon brought low by Byzantine-icon your own arrogance. These are the death throes of Rome. The light of civilization dims and gutters. And if such precious time was left to hide your women, for your children to cry, even at the moment of your final defeat, you will take no comfort in oblivion. For I am coming for you. I RIDE WITH A MILLION WARRIORS! I BRING THE END OF DAYS! I AM! THE SCOURGE!! OF GOD!!! And I will watch your world... Burn.
Hun-icon Attila the Hun, Total War: Attila

Hunnic Empireball, also known as Hunball, was a nomadic empire in Central Asia, and later, Eastern and Central Europe.


Hunnic Empireball may have descended from the Hun-icon Xiongnu, a Multi-Ethnic Confederacy in Eastern Asia, who were also called the Huns, or may have been a mix of the Xiongnu who moved West and mixed with the Scythia-icon Scythians. Invading Europe, Hunnic Empireball caused the Great Migration of the native Germania-icon Germanic tribes, thereby causing the Gothic War and the Battle of Adrianople (378 CE), as well as the Sack of Rome (410 CE) by the Visigothic Kingdom-icon Visigoths, and the creations of the Visigothic Kingdomball, the Kingdom of the Suebi-icon Kingdom of the Suebiball, the Vandal Kingdom-icon Vandal Kingdomball, and the city of Venice-icon Veniceball . Under the leadership of Attila the Hun from 434 CE to his death in 453 CE, Hunnic Empireball expanded into Europe until being defeated in 451 CE at the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains, against a coalition of Visigothic Kingdom-iconFrancia-iconCross of Burgundy-icon Germanic Tribes Saxons-iconBrittany-iconSouth Ossetia-icon, led by Western Roman Empire-icon Flavius Aetius. Hunnic Empireball eventually invaded Italy, but was unable to take Rome-icon Romeball, and was convinced by Vatican-icon Pope Leo I to turn back. After Attila's death at his wedding with a Germanic princess (possibly after either a nosebleed, causing him to choke to death, or from heavy drinking, causing internal bleeding from esophageal varices), control was split between Attila’s three sons. However, Hunnic Empireball fell into decline, and after the Battle of Nedao in 454 CE, collapsed. Under the lead of Dengizich, the Huns reorganized and moved east, attacking the Byzantine-icon Eastern Roman Empireball, until being defeated in 469 CE at the Battle of Bassianae, after which, the Huns disappeared from European history.
