"Attila and Bleda were as ambitious as king Ruglia. They forced the Eastern Roman Empire to sign the Treaty of Margus, giving the Huns (amongst other things) trade rights and an annual tribute from the Romans."
The phrase giving the Huns..... modifies the word they or the Eastern Roman. I think the phrase modifies the word they. I am not sure.

'Modify' can mean different things to different people, so I won't tackle that.
All I have to say is that it was the signing of the the Treaty of Margus or perhaps simply the Treaty of Margus , not they or the Eastern Roman Empire, which gave the Huns the trade rights and tribute.
