10 Amazing Facts About the Aztecs

Recommended Posts

Very interesting video, thanks for posting it.

I am fascinated by how errors in perception (thinking Cortez was a returning sun God) and pissing off the neighbors (so that they threw in with the Spaniards) caused this amazing civilization to be knocked off by a few hundred Spaniards.  By all rights the Spanish should have been quickly killed off by the Aztecs.  This is one of the great stories of history.

Of course some student would always raise his hand and say, what about The Bible?

The Aztecs actually existed.

Well the Aztecs were fooled by their prophecy but as well were set up by their enemies and Cortez quickly figured out that allying himself with the trnes who hated the Aztecs was the way to victory. Without their allies against the Aztecs , Cortez and his men would have been decimated
