Summary Edit

Español: El imperio huno se extendía desde las estepas de Asia Central hasta la actual Alemania, y desde el Danubio hasta el Báltico

This is a map of the empire of Attila the Hun, circa 450 CE (AD), superimposed on modern borders. The borders of Attila's empire are only approximate because:

  • The empire was a very loose collection of conquered peoples and did not have the structure of a formal empire (such as the Persian or Roman Empires).
  • Records of the eastern and northern borders of Attila's empire are nearly non-existent.

The star shows the approximate location of the capital of Attila's empire. It is not known with any certainty where the capital was actually located. It was either based on the ruins of the Roman city of Acquincum (today's Budapest), or it was his mobile 'wooden castle' (as described by Priscus Rhetor on his visit to Attila's camp), which was based primarily in the Hungarian Great Plain, somewhere near the Tisza River.
