Description

Moctezuma, the great Aztec emperor. Everything was normal in his domains from the great Tenochtitlan, current Mexico City.

The Aztecs did not have a rival that threatened them in all of Mesoamerica. Or at least everything was like that until 1519 (year “1 Cane” for the Aztecs), when Moctezuma and some priests received a series of 7 bad omens about a great event that would forever change the society they knew.

In April of that year, while in his palace, a messenger brought him news of very big “houses that floated” in the waters of the eastern ocean. They were the Spaniards coming from the other side of the world, led by Hernán Cortés. Moctezuma knew that his omens had come true.

It was time for Moctezuma’s big call. Did he act in fear or in anger against them? Moctezuma followed a war strategy or did he have to naively improvise? What would anyone have done receiving visitors from a totally different world? Come to know the rest of the story on this virtual tour.
