Quotes

Flavius Aetius: [about Attila] A few more like him, and Rome could conquer the world all over again.

Placidia: Actius, you told me that if Attila attacked the West it would be on your head. Do you begin to feel the WEIGHT?

Honoria: [about Attila] He's quite striking - in a primitive sort of way.

Girl: His clothes are made of animal skins.

Honoria: Don't worry, he'll be out of them soon enough.

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.

Young Attila: Kneel.

Man: Kneel to a boy?

Young Attila: Submit to me and live.

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: 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.

Honoria: I say that if a woman can only have power through a man, then let it be with the most powerful man she can find.

Bleda: 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!

Flavius Aetius: Let's make a bargain here and now, a treaty of peace between your people and mine.

Attila the Hun: I think that's the first sign of weakness I've seen you show.

Flavius Aetius: There is only one fathomable reason why you are here. you *need* me.

Placidia: Why would I need you?

Flavius Aetius: If I had to guess, I say that the Hunss are on the move again and you and the rest of Rome are pretified with fear.

Placidia: There are rumors of a new warlord amongst the southern tribes. Attila, do you know him?

Flavius Aetius: No, but I know King Rua. And that is what matters.

Ildico: You do you marry, me or N'Kara?

Galen: The beast with red fur.

N'Kara: The toadstool who talks.

Galen: Bleda mounts you more often than his horse.

N'Kara: That is no choice of mine.

Galen: Then why do you?

N'Kara: My mother and sister, if I kill myself then Bleda will kill them.

Galen: They live becasue of Attila... I have seen the way he looks at you, and the way you look at him.

N'Kara: It doesn't matter, I belong to Belda.

Galen: A Hun warrior does not possess a woman until she bears his child. If you bear Bleda's then Attila will have nothing to do with you.

Galen: [takes a a little bag]

Galen: Take one of these every morning, they will keep Bleda's seed from your womb. Attila or Bleda. Bleda or Attila, I know who Galen would choose.

Ildico: Who do you marry, me or N'Kara?

Flavius Aetius: There is only one fathomable reason why you are here, you *need* me.

Placidia: Why would I need you?

Flavius Aetius: If I had to guess, I say that the Huns are on the move again and you and the rest of Rome are pretified with fear.

Placidia: There are rumors of a new warlord amongst the southern tribes. Attila, do you know him?

Flavius Aetius: No, but I know King Rua. And that is what matters.

Placidia: My daughter married to a barbarian? She'd be the laughingstock of Rome.

Flavius Aetius: I doubt it. At least there'd be a Rome to do the laughing.

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?
