You built an SPQR-icon.png empire beyond imagining. The pinnacle of human achievement and the envy of the world. Did you think it would last? Rome-icon.png The eternal city. That glorious monument to Macedon-icon.png power, Ancient Greece-icon.png culture, and Ptolemaic Egypt-icon.png learning. But the Western Roman Empire-icon.png Old Wolf lies wounded by Goths-icon.png jackals; circled by Sassanid-icon.png vultures. Worried to death by Angles-icon.pngSaxons-icon.pngFrancia-icon.png a thousand tiny vicious mouths— Visigothic Kingdom-icon.pngOstrogothic Kingdom-icon.pngVandal Kingdom-icon.png brought low by Byzantine-icon.png 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.

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

History

Hunnic Empireball may have descended from the Hun-icon.png 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.png Scythians. Invading Europe, Hunnic Empireball caused the Great Migration of the native Germania-icon.png 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.png Visigoths, and the creations of the Visigothic Kingdomball, the Kingdom of the Suebi-icon.png Kingdom of the Suebiball, the Vandal Kingdom-icon.png Vandal Kingdomball, and the city of Venice-icon.png 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-icon.pngFrancia-icon.pngCross of Burgundy-icon.png Germanic Tribes Saxons-icon.pngBrittany-icon.pngSouth Ossetia-icon.png, led by Western Roman Empire-icon.png Flavius Aetius. Hunnic Empireball eventually invaded Italy, but was unable to take Rome-icon.png Romeball, and was convinced by Vatican-icon.png 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.png Eastern Roman Empireball, until being defeated in 469 CE at the Battle of Bassianae, after which, the Huns disappeared from European history.
