Historical Background: In 1519 Hernando Cortes landed at modern day Vera Cruz (True Cross), Mexico with about 600 men. He moved inland conquering some native peoples while forging alliances with others who hated and feared the Aztecs. Montezuma, the Aztec king, believed the Spanish would overthrow him and plunder his city of Tenochtitlan. When the two leaders first met, relations were cordial. However, it wasn’t long before hostilities commenced, setting off a war that would last nearly two years, resulting in the slaughter of thousands of Aztecs, pillaging of treasure, and the conquest of the Aztec Empire in 1521.
