The Hunic war was a war that Rome fought against the Huns. The war lasted five years.



The war was caused by Huns invading east Roman Towns since November 148 AD. In the beginning, much Roman land was lost.


The war begun in February 2, 154 AD.

Early Retaliation

Eli begun retaliation when he started posting extra troops in towns to defend them. It had significant effect at first, until larger groups of Huns begun to attack at once.

Roman Troops then begun to attack Hun Towns directly, once again pushing the Roman Empire on top. This of course, didn't last, as larger forces started to arrive.

Battle of Eli Wes

The Battle of Eli Wes is the bloodiest and possibly most important of all battles in the Hunic War.

The battle started when over 4000 Hunic Troops attacked a heavily fortified Roman Town named Arce'Oppidum. Eli thought this battle would end easily as 150,000 were stationed to defend it. It did not happen so because as 4000 were attacking from the front larger groups of Huns of about 10,000 were attacking from the sides.

Before the cocky commander could figure this out, a Hun shot him in the abdomen with a bow. He was to be taken to Colchester to be treated to prevent death, but it was in vain as he was again shot.

Without their general, the Roman Soldiers split into two groups. One would fight the left group of Huns, one would fight the right. Although the Romans eventually won, they lost their general.

After the battle, word about this spread and Eli was commonly called "The Unlucky General". The battle resulted in over 60,000 Roman deaths. This is more than any other battle in the war, combined. Over 15,000 Huns died.

End of the War

As Hunic Forces waned, so did their morale. With less and less battles being fought, the Huns at large disbanded. Many of the remnants migrated east.

Some ironically, joined Rome, wishing to start a new life. Some even joining Germania.
