What are the three horns that were plucked out in Daniel 7:8?


Daniel 7:8

NKJV - 8 I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.

There is little agreement among Bible scholars who the little horn is or who the three horns of Daniel 7 are. (In the Bible horns represent powers or kings). 

However, the explanation that makes the most sense (in my opinion) is that the little horn is papal power while the three little horns are the Heruli (493 AD), the Vandals, (534 AD), and, the Ostrogoths (538 AD). 

Vandals, Ostrogoths and Heruli were tribes opposed the rise of the papal power and were completely destroyed by the Roman armies. In 538 AD after the defeat of the Ostrogoths, Justinian decreed that the bishop of Rome is the head of all the churches.
