Caption: Attila (406-453), Emperor of the Huns. Originating from the steppes of Central Asia, the Huns swept westwards and established the large Hunnic Empire, which stretched as far west as Germany and as far south as the Danube. Under Attila's rule, the Huns invaded the Balkans and Gaul, and gained a reputation for cruelty and barbarism. This woodcut portrait is from the 1575 Basle edition of Elogia virorum bellica virtute illustrium (Praise of Men Illustrious for Courage in War) by the Italian historian and biographer Paolo Giovio (1483-1552).
