Hernan Cortes set sail for an expedition to the mainland of South America along with 10 other ships
Cortes and his fleet arrived at the eastern coast of Mexico where he heard tales of a powerful king called Montezuma.
Montezuma heard from his scouts that there are strangers on the coast. Unsure of what to do, he decided to send gifts to the visitors such as gold, silver, and other precious stones.
It took 7 days for the scouts to march over the mountains especially with the gifts they are carrying.
When Cortes received the gifts, he thought it was an insult to the Spanish as this was bribery to take control over the fleet.
In return, Cortes decided to send small gifts such as glass ornaments and bracelets.
