Kreka was the wife or "queen" of Attila the Hun. Although Attila had a harem of women, Kreka outranked all of her rivals, and exercised considerable influence upon the affairs of the state. She had three sons, of whom the eldest governed the Acatiri and the other nations who dwelled in Pontic Scythia.
