The Aztec and Spanish Worlds Collide

The Aztecs and the Spanish Conquest

Seeking gold and riches, Hernán Cortés led a fleet of 11 Spanish ships to Mexico in 1518. This video investigates the reasons for Spanish expansion to the Americas and the series of resulting events that culminated in not only the destruction of Tenochtitlán, the most glorious city in the Aztec lands, but the destruction of the entire Aztec civilisation. An excellent introduction to the Aztecs for students of History.
