Attila is a cavalry hero found only in the Scourge of God and Fall of Rome scenarios of his campaign, as well as in the Scenario Editor. He appears as a Cataphract. He is a must-survive unit in both of the scenarios, and in the latter, he must meet Pope Leo I outside Rome to win the scenario. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health.

History Edit


Artistic representation of Attila.

While the real Attila the Hun did rise to become the leader of the Hunnic Empire following his brother's death, the circumstances of his ascension were pretty much left ambiguous by historical records. Some sources states that Bleda was deliberately murdered by his brother in 445 after the Huns pulled their forces out of Byzantium, while others speculated it was the result of a hunting trip where an assassination attempt was made on Attila's life (and failed).

The hunting trip version of the theory was depicted in the first level of Attila's eponymous campaign.
