Spanish Empire 3 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Spanish Empire Based on The Aztecs • Hernan Cortes • Moctezuma
  • 2. Hernan Cortes • The first decade of the 16th Century, the emperor Moctezuma II of the Aztecs thought he was the master of the world. But the arrival of Hernan Cortes changed everything because the Spanish wanted a lot of what the Aztec land had to offer. When the Spanish arrived, Moctezuma sent his best sorcerers to bewitch them. Moctezuma was unsure of what he was supposed to do, greet the Spanish or attack them. The Aztec enemies greeted the Spanish with open arms because they say they had strong firepower and soldiers. Cortez took the offer and joined the angry Aztec enemies who were ready for revenge.
  • 3. Moctezuma • Moctezuma, the Aztec Emperor of Tenochtitlan for a long time did not know how to welcome the Spanish, but after time he welcome the new masters, and was betrayed. Cortes was allowed in the Palace of Axayacatl, and then Moctezuma and other lords were immediately arrested and placed under guard. Once they were arrested, the Aztecs were going to celebrate a feast for their god, and the Spanish saw it as an opportunity to assemble the Aztec nobility and murder them. It is said they killed ten thousand Aztecs, including Moctezuma which is unsure who killed him. The surviving Aztecs fought back and eventually pushed them out, but not forever. Eventually Cortes got help from other tribes who hated the Aztecs, but they wouldn’t have helped if they knew Cortes would be planning on eliminating them too.
