Gli Unni erano un popolo guerriero, nomade di stirpe turco-mongola, proveniente dall’Asia, che giunse in Europa nel IV secolo.
Nel 432 gli Unni avevano un tale potere che lo zio di Attila, il re Rua, riceveva un consistente tributo dall’impero.
Una delle conseguenze dell'invasione degli unni in Italia fu che gli abitanti di Aquileia si rifugiarono nel territorio, affacciato sull’Adriatico, costituito da isole, paludi e lagune, che sarebbe diventato Venezia.

The latter's invasion of Friesland in 934 involved him in war with the German King, Henry I. Having been vanquished, he was forced to restore the churches which he had demolished as well as to grant toleration to his Christian subjects, and he died one year later, bequeathing his throne to Harold.
Bishop Unni of Bremen, accompanied by Benedictine monks from the Abbey of Corvey, preached the gospel in Jutland (Jylland) and the Danish isles, and soon won the confidence of the young ruler, although he did not succeed in persuading him to receive baptism.
