The Battle of the Catalaunian Plains (or Fields), also called the Battle of Châlons (also spelled Chalons or Chalon), took place in 451 between a coalition led by the Roman general Flavius Aëtius and the Visigothic king Theodoric I on one side and the Huns and their allies commanded by Attila on the other. It was one of the last major military operations of the Western Roman Empire and marks the apex of the career of Flavius Aëtius. The battle resulted in a defeat for the Huns and considerably hindered their attempt to conquer western Europe.
