Ca. AD 440-450. Honoria, the older sister of Valentinian III, secretly married the imperial chamberlain, Eugenius, who was then executed. Valentinian demanded that she marry an elderly senator Herculanus Bassus. In an attempt to avoid this fate, Honoria wrote to Attila the Hun offering to become his wife and this apparently led to the battle on the Catalonian Fields. According to some sources she married Herculanus after all.
