Let's take a look at the government of the Mayan civilization!
Sure! The Mayans were different from the Incas and Aztecs because they were united through their culture.
What do you mean?
Each Mayan city-state was ruled by a noble family and neighboring city states fought a lot.
Were there any upsides to a government like this?
Yes! Neighboring cities would also often team up to take down other ones, or improve roads and land.
Well, how did this specific type of government help in wars?
There were, because when the Spanish came, they had to conquer each individual city state instead of taking down a central king. Also, while they were taking down one city-state, others would team up and launch a counter attack
