A long time ago in the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan there was 2 volcanos southeast of the city. There names were Ixtlaccihuatl and Popocatepetl they were both snow capped. Popocatepetl is the taller one out of the two. Popo was always smoking. Ixtlaccihuatl meant the white woman cause of its peek
Once there was a ruler of Aztec and he was very powerful. Him and his wife had a girl baby he taught his child all about the art of ruling.
Listen the art of ruling can be very hard but I
I need to be serious now and study the responsibilities i will take over
As Ixtla grew up she knew that she would have big responsibilities when her father would pass away so she became more studious and serious and wasn't her fun self.
Ixtla was very upset afterward because she had been in love with a guy she had met in school named Popocatepetl which they called him Pop. Popo was a warrior in the service of the Emperor. They both loved eachother, their relationship continued for several years begging the emperor to change his decision.
Daughter i wish for when i die you do not marry. You must rule alone!
The Emperor then became old and ill, he soon realized that he wasn't as powerful as he was before.The emperor had made a bribe to the warriors and Ixtla then became fearful.
The warriors must protect and listen to me til you are empress.
Father that is no point to set a bribe you must except the fact of your power being gone
The three warriors were very jealous of Popo being held accountable for the victory so they headed to the emperor's place and told them news that Popo had died in the field. The Emperor then told her daughter and she felt a sudden sickness that couldn't be cured it was a broken heart, She soon passed away. Then when Popo came back from the war he had came to see Ixtla and he was told she was dead. To always remember her he climbed to the top of a mountain and held a torcch up that is how he got to be a smokey mountain.
Emperor sorry but Popo had not made it through the war
