For most of the Hun’s history was governed by chieftains. Even in battle they did not have a general leader, this changed. Later on in the Hun’s history the Huns were controlled under a strong ruler or king, creating a Monarchy. Children of kings and nobles had an advantage but there was mobility between classes and children of other classes could move up if they were skilled and had leadership qualities. Attila, the most famous Hun was born to the ruling family, the nephew of the king. They had rules rather than formal law. Since they didn’t read or write these rules were passed down from generation to generation from men and women elders. They did not interact with other civilizations all they did was destroy and attack them for resources.
