Storyboard Text

  • In March 1519, Hernan Cortes landed at Tobasco in Mexico's Bay of Campeche
  • Let's defeat the Aztecs, troops!
  • Hernan won over many tribes because they hated the vicious Aztecs.
  • We're on your side, Cortes. Here is a female slave, Marina. Go and take down the Aztecs!
  • On November 18, 1519, the spaniards and their warriors allowed to enter Tenochitlan because Montezuma, the aztec ruler, believed in the Quetzalcatl legend. This stated that, in the "one reed" year (1519), divine envoys of the god would arrive.
  • Let's go meet Montezuma
  • After their supposedly "peaceful" meeting, Cortes took Montezuma hostage.
  • In the spring of 1520, Cortes got word that Narvez, a fellow explorer, and his soldiers were sailing down from Cuba to try to take him down. He lead his troops to meet them, and Cortes immediately defeated Narvez and took his troops.
  • Soldiers of Narvez, you must work for me now!!
  • Cortes returns to a chaotic Tenochitlan; the person he put in charge of ruling the city while he was gone sacrificed Aztec chiefs, causing the people to rebel.
