Attila

Attila the Hun was the leader of the Hunnic Empire in 434-453 AD. His methods of conquering new lands, from Germany to the Ural Mountains, are believed to be some of the most brutal, savage and cruel in history. Even his death was barbaric – he drowned in his own blood. He didn’t really discriminate between his own people and his enemies – murder was his business card. He was also believed to be into drinking women’s blood.
