    Explanation
    Constantinople is not one of Attila's vassals because it was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire, also known as the Byzantine Empire, and was not under Attila's control. Attila was the leader of the Huns, a nomadic people who controlled a vast empire in Europe during the 5th century. His vassals were various Germanic tribes that were subjugated by the Huns and paid tribute to Attila. The Ostrogoths, Thuringians, and Burgundians were among these vassals, but Constantinople was not.
