End of Empire: Rise and Fall of Dynasties
Attila the Hun: The Barbarian Invader
Episode 3  |  The History Channel  |  June 10, 2019

Attila the Hun was called the barbaric Scourge of God for the devastation he rained down on the Christian nations of Europe. But Attila was far more than a ferocious warrior. He proved himself to be a military strategist, an exceptional political mastermind - and a great deal-maker. Yet, after his death, his sons fought each other for the throne and his empire disappeared within fifteen years. Presenter David Adams sets out to discover the true story of Attila and his dysfunctional family. It is a journey that takes him from the plains of Hungary to the formidable walls of Roman Constantinople, from battlegrounds in France to the Hun-devastated Roman city of Aquileia and Heroes Square in Belgrade as David peels away myth and legend to reveal the true story of this great warrior king and the subsequent destructive family feud that resulted in the End of Empire.
