Focus on HONORIA, a intricate, delicate shade from “Ignis Antiquita”

Justa Grata Honoria was the older sister of Roman Emperor Valentian III. Regarded as too ambitious and promiscuous, her Brother decided to marry her to a “safe” Roman Senator who did not challenge his rule. Honoria responded with a plea for help to Attila the Hun, an enemy of Rome. Her plea included her ring, which Attila interpreted as her requesting marriage. And giving him an excuse to invade Rome. Little is known of Honoria after this incident, but one has to give her credit for standing up for herself, even if it did completely backfire.
