Sanzio Rafaella, 1514: Leo the Great Meets Attila the Hun. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the Popes were effectively the governors of the city. Leo negotiated with the Huns to withdraw from Italy in return for an annual ransom. When the Vandals pillaged Rome three years later, he persuaded them not to burn the city and slaughter all the inhabitants. (Vatican Museums)

Attila the Hun (R. over the Huns from 434-453). With his brother Bleda, Attila succeeded his uncle, and became sole king in 445. Attila was the scourge of both the Eastern and Western halves of the Roman Empire. Told the Romans he would leave them alone if they paid enough gold; invaded when they didn’t. Invaded Italy after Honoria begged for his help getting out of an unwanted marriage, claiming he was now betrothed to the princess.  Died shortly thereafter.
