Storyboard Text

  • I want to conquer the Aztecs and take all the gold from Spain. We dont have enough men so well make allies with them here in Meso America
  • Cortes
  • We could not defeat the Spanish they had much more powerful weapons and armor. Our only choice is to make peace with them. Plus the Aztecs are our enemies, it would be better to defeat them anyway.
  • The Tlaxclan
  • Legends have foretold our pale skinned and bearded God. Quetzalcoatl would arrive and come to us this year, is this him?
  • With the help of La Malinch, Cortes was able to meet Montezuma.
  • The Spanish surrounded and attacked unarmed Aztec worshipers, however, the Aztec retaliated so ferociously the Spanish had to retreat
  • 1520
  •  On the 1st of July, the Spanish forces were driven back.  The Spanish and their native allies suffered heavy losses.  (This is known as la Noche Triste - The Sad Night)
  • 1521-1522 CE
  • Fall of Tenochtitlán:  Cuauhetemoc surrendered to Cortes and there was destruction of the city. Two years later the Spanish rebuilt the city  as Mexico City, capital of New Spain
