Terrible legend about the conquistadors of Cortes found confirmation

In Mexico, archaeologists for the first time found archaeological evidence of the legend that the conquistadors, on the orders of Hernan Cortes, brutally avenged the indigenous people for the murder of Spanish soldiers. The massacre overtook the inhabitants of the city allied to the Aztecs, and the conquerors spared neither children nor women.

A summary of the study is published on the website of the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico (INAH). Excavations were carried out on the territory of the city of Zultepec-Tecoac, in which the people of Akolua lived — an ally of the so-called Triple Alliance, the powerful Aztec empire.

It is known from written sources that at the beginning of 1521 the famous conquistador Hernán Cortes ordered his subordinate Gonzalo de Sandoval to destroy Zultepec. It was revenge for the actions of the Acolhua Indians.

Earlier, in 1520, local warriors attacked a Spanish convoy from Cuba. They took a large number of prisoners, including 15 Spanish men, 50 women and 10 children. In addition, 45 infantrymen were captured, among whom were Cubans of African and indigenous origin. About 350 Indians from tribes that were allies of the conquistadors were also captured.

The fate of the captives, judging by the legend, turned out to be terrible. They were kept in captivity for about six months. The Spaniards were mostly sacrificed to the gods, while, as excavations proved, the townspeople were cannibals and did not spare the Europeans. By the way, in the language of the Aztecs, this city was called Nahuatl, which means «the place where they ate them.»

According to archaeologist Enrique Martínez Vargas, the excavations suggested that the inhabitants of Zultepec knew or suspected Cortes’ decision to take revenge on them. This is indicated, for example, by the primitive defensive structures that the townspeople erected in obvious haste. In addition, the remains of the slain Spaniards were found in shallow wells. Ritual scenes were engraved on the bones.

Excavations revealed that none of the defensive structures worked as intended. De Sandoval’s detachment entered the city without any problems and first of all passed along the central highway. As follows from the INAH release, some warriors managed to escape from the city. However, women and children remained inside.

It was they who became the main victims of this massacre. This is evidenced by numerous remains discovered during excavations by archaeologists. There are practically no remains of male warriors. At the same time, more than a dozen remains of women and children were found who were killed.

In general, archaeologists have unearthed the central street of the city with a length of about 120 meters. This is where most of the victims were found. According to archaeologists, judging by the location of the bodies, the women tried to cover the children with themselves, and these were children aged 5-6 years.

«The location of the graves suggests that these people fled, were killed and buried in a hurry,» the institute said in a statement. «Women and children who took refuge in buildings were mutilated. Temples were burned and statues were beheaded. »

Scholars emphasize that cruelty was manifested on both sides during the Spanish conquest of 1519-1521. It has been established, for example, that the skulls of murdered Spanish men and women in Zultepec were strung on stakes and put on public display.

One Spanish man, according to research, was burned to reproduce the mythical fate of the gods of the Aztec era. The Indians probably reproduced the myth known as «El Quinto Sol» or «The Fifth Sun».

Let us add that the convoy captured by the Indians from Cuba was heading to the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan with supplies and property of the conquerors. Initially, he was accompanied by Cortes, but he was forced to leave him and go to Tenochtitlan, where an uprising broke out at that moment. Later, in 1521, Cortes finally conquered the Aztec capital.

On this day the conquistador Cortes landed in Mexico | News

On March 13, 1519, the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes landed with a detachment in Mexico.

The jungles of Central America were suffocatingly hot. Two Christian missionary monks, brothers Juan de Orbita and Bartolome de Fuensalida, and several natives made their way through the endless, uncharted forests. The crowns of trees and creepers were so dense that nothing could be seen beyond the bow. And even the sky did not open to the eyes in this thicket. The monks were at their limit. They suffered from insomnia and voracious mosquitoes. Every hundred meters they met with one or another insurmountable obstacle: a lake, a swamp with crocodiles, a river with treacherous currents, mangroves. The forest swallowed them up, and there was not a soul around. Only occasionally did flocks of shrill monkeys show up.

The suffering of the monks ended only when they reached the village of Tayasal, where the Mayan Indians lived. The monks washed, washed and dried their clothes, healed their wounds. The local qasik (leader) invited them to the main temple of the village.

What was the surprise of the holy brothers when they found among the Indian idols a statue of a horse, an animal that was not known to the indigenous population before the arrival of Europeans! It turned out that they were not pioneers! Before them, some of the inhabitants of the Old World had already managed to visit these forests.

Kasik told the monks that once, more than ninety years ago, a great leader from the north, the ruler of white people and Indians, passed through the village. His black stallion went lame and he left it as a gift to the head chief of Thayasal. So this outlandish animal entered the local pantheon.

The Spanish monks perfectly understood what kind of person they were talking about. The name of this man was outlawed in Spain, his works were forbidden to be printed, his family became impoverished and disappeared from the pages of history forever. He, the conqueror of Mexico, the founder of a huge colony, a traveler and a reformer who did a lot for the Spanish crown, was forgotten in his homeland. And the Indians whom he doomed to a slave fate, whose blood he shed in rivers, the Indians remembered him. That man was Fernando Cortes…

Fortune at the end of his life finally turned away from the Marquis de Vallee. Feeling the approach of death, he wrote a will, in which, among other things, he asked to be buried in New Spain. He also ordered to release his Indian slaves, to thank friends, servants, and confidants.

On the night of Friday, December 2, 1547, Cortes died of exhaustion.

Already in the memoirs of his contemporaries, he was presented as a legend, both the “white” and “black” sides of his character were noted. Endowed with a rare charm and strong character, Cortes led his comrades-in-arms through fire and water. Possessing great courage, he entered into battles with immeasurably more numerous opponents and won victories.

There was another side to his fiery nature. Without a twinge of conscience, he betrayed the people who believed him, both subordinates and leaders.
