re Hephthalites

My questions are:
what kind of nationality were they? - we don't know
what language did they speak? - again, not enough information
had they had mixed origin from turkic people, iranians, scytians etc? probably

When Gokturk empire defeated them, avars spread out and moved to Europe.
Were Hefthalites avars? - no, the Avars may have been remnants of the Ruanruan though, some sholars called them 'Eastern Avars' though (just in case you weren't confused enough).


rgds.

Heftalithes or white hunns were able to make huge state on the border between Persia and India in 5th century.

Heftgalites are greek given name, some call them white hunns.
