For my project, I chose to show the government system of the Mayans.
The Mayan government system was very unique because instead of one leader over all, each city had its own ruler.
But because they weren't one united civilization, the Mayan's were a warlike society and fought all that time against each other for more land, wealth or power.
The way they were organized had an advantage because when the Spanish conquistadors they found it harder to conquer the Mayand than the Aztecs and Incas.
Unlike the Aztecs or the Incas, the Spanish couldn't eliminate one leader and force the rest of the territory to surrender. They had to fight all the different cities and when they fought with one city the others band together and of stronger.
