Huns at the Battle of Chalons

Huns at the Battle of Chalons

This illustration, of the Huns fighting at Chalons (also known as the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains), is by A. De Neuville (1836-1885).  The fighting took place, in 451, between Atilla (together with his Huns and allies) on one side and the Roman general Flavius Aetius (together with Theodoric I and his Visigoths) on the other. 

It was one of the few times Atilla did not prevail.
