ATTILA THE HUN
Trickery and deceit. That is the way of the Romans, not of the Huns.
FLAVIUS AETIUS
Yes, but which way rules the world?

ATTILA THE HUN
I thought that the War God had refused me a sign, but I was wrong. What better sign than an enemy prepared to fight?

FLAVIUS AETIUS
Civilized men are easy to conquer, but civilization still belongs to the civilized, not the barbarians.
ATTILA THE HUN
It belongs to whoever is strong enough to take it.

Rua died without issue. I am the elder son of his brother, and so am rightfully king.
ATTILA THE HUN
To what purpose? To fight in the service of Rome or some other nation?
BLEDA
We will live as Huns have always lived. What else should we do?
ATTILA THE HUN
We should rule the world!

Let's make a bargain here and now, a treaty of peace between your people and mine.
ATTILA THE HUN

You Romans play with kings and nations as a child plays with toys.
FLAVIUS AETIUS
I go back to Rome soon. Come with me, and learn how the world is ruled. Find out if Rome really does play with nations as though they were toys. There is no-one like you in Rome, and no-one like me here. You and I can do great things together.
ATTILA THE HUN
If we don't kill each other first.
