How The Empire Fell

"The Gupta Empire fell to a wave of migrations by the Hun, who originally lived north of China. Beginning in the 400s, pressure began to be put of the empire. In 480, the Hun conquered the Guptas and took over northern India. In 500, western India was taken over. By 550, the last of the Gupta Kings died."
