Attila the Hun - Legends and Legacy

Attila led the Huns for eight short but dramatic years, but his sons were unable to folllow in his footsteps.  The Hunnic Empire reached its height during Attila's reign.

Today, Attila's legacy (and legends) vary depending on one's point of view.  In Hungary, and other places in Europe, he is fondly remembered and considered a hero.  In other places, he is reviled as a ruthless killer.
