    Some historians attribute the survival of Persian culture in Iran and Hinduism in India to what “colorful” people who dominated what is now the “Stans,” including Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran from the 200s to 500s CE? 

    Looking up the answer is cheating.

    Hint: The answer is (color) (name of people)

    Hint #2: The Goths and Romans were enemies of their cousins, who did not have a color in front of their name. 

    Answer is White ____s

    OK I’m calling this at about 7:10 if no one gets it. Final hint: Aetius defeated the most famous cousin of these folks in France in 451.

      Sorry, incorrect, but you get the idea about the colorful adjective. Wrong color, BTW.

      Sorry, incorrect. Part of their name is a color. Their easier name, anyway.

      Sorry, incorrect. They weren’t Muslims. In fact, their invasions forced the Hindu states of India to maintain more effective armies, which enabled them to withstand the initial Muslim onslaught.

    I’m going to guess green somebody because you see many green flags over there, like the Mahdi Army. Green Malarashi?

    White Elephants.

    Heard they helped out Hannibal but once he was done he had the damnedest timing selling the old critter.

    Aetius..… color… Burgundians?     I don’t know if this makes sense but that’s my best and last guess.

    The answer is The White Huns. 

    They were an eastern branch of the Huns, but the Chinese called them White Huns because they associated white with west, for some Chinese reason, and they were to the west of China. Their depredations, and sometimes rule, actually strengthened their enemies the Persians and Indians. The former culturally, and the latter militarily. When the Arabs came, that probably made the difference in Iran preserving its culture and India maintaining its independence.

    They were an important people, but Westerners have hardly ever heard of them. It’s a pity.
