Attila the Hun
0406 - 0453

King and military leader of the Huns. Attila became king in 433 and effectively united hordes divided by internal strife into a formidable and aggressive people. Led by him, the Huns successfully invaded the eastern Roman empire and continued on through Austria, Germany and into Gaul, brutalizing and plundering with a ferocity which became his legacy. He was finally slowed by newly-united Roman forces, and stopped by the persuasion of Catholic leaders including Pope Leo I.


Superficial goals lead to superficial results.

quoted in The Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun, by Wess Roberts, 1987
As a nation, we would accomplish more if Huns behaved as though national goals were as important to them as personal goals.

quoted in The Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun, by Wess Roberts, 1987
Be compatible to the policies of our nation and our tribe. Otherwise, you will seek ways to accomplish your own ambitions. Thus, you will ultimately lose, no matter how bold or tenacious your efforts.

quoted in The Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun, by Wess Roberts, 1987
Appropriate stress is essential in developing chieftains.
