Part 2 of Moctezuma vs Cortes
This storyboard does not have a description.
Greetings, great god Quetzalcoatl. Welcome to your land! My ancestors and I have guarded your sacred lands for the day we knew you would return.
Greetings, great lord Moctezuma. My men and I come in peace, and we wish to stay here for some time. I must leave, but I will leave Pedro de Alvarado in charge. I trust things will pass smoothly in my absence.
In Cortes's absence...
How dare these foreigners mock our hospitality by killing our priests and interrupting the sacred dance of Huitzilopochtli! Expel them from Tenochtitlan, now!
Great speaker Moctezuma, during our sacred sun ritual today, a group of the newcomers interrupted the ceremony and killed some of our priests, who were unarmed.
NEVER! Moctezuma, tell your men to stand down!
LEAVE TENOCHTITLAN, or suffer the consequences!
We will avenge those who have died during the Noche Triste. We must stay here at Tlaxcala for a while, and then we will put Tenochtitlan under seige. The Aztec already begin to die of smallpox, the Spanish disease.
Many of our own Tlaxcalan warriors died on the sad night. What do you expect to do about the Aztec?
After seventy-five days of siege, the great city of Tenochtitlan has fell. The king will be happy with this new territory and the Aztec silver and gold.
