Storyboard Text

  • Massacre of the unarmed Aztecs
  • Alvarado was left in charge when Cortes left. The Aztecs were doing a festival honoring their god. Alvarado was afraid the Aztecs were going to sacrifice them and attacked the Aztecs. They eventually had to retreat
  • Attack!
  • Moctezuma gets stoned to death from his own men because he told them them to stop attacking the Spanish believing Cortes was Quetzalcoatl. His men had enough of it therefore they stoned him. A new leader was chosen after his death.
  • Noche Triste (Sorrowful Night)
  • Stop attacking Them!!
  • We had enough of you protecting him!!
  • Noche triste (Sorrowful Night)
  • Cortes had beaten the Spanish trying to arrest him and his army size increased. One night Cortes and his men were trying to escape, they were weighted down by the gold they were carrying. Therefore 700 Spanish were killed.
  • Ha!!
  • An Unforeseen Enemy
  • The Spanish for 5 months recovered from the attack. The Aztecs lost half the population from smallpox a disease from Europe. The Europeans bodies were immune to it, the Aztecs didn't have time build resistance against it causing the deaths. The new Heuy tlatoani also dies, his cousin succeeds him
  • The Final Battle
  • The Spanish Regrouped and attacked the Aztecs. The Aztecs lost much of their population from smallpox causing them to be much weaker. Cortes blocked the canals, the causeways, and the aqueducts, preventing food and water from reaching the city. Many of the citizens who had survived the plague died from hunger and contaminated drinking water. The last group of Aztec surrendered on August 13, 1521. The Aztec huey tlatoani, Cuauhtemoc, was taken prisoner and hanged. The great Aztec Empire was no more.
