The Aztecs were a warrior tribe that conquered many tribes while expanding their empire. Their culture included human sacrifice and cannibalism, and cruelty towards those conquered was not uncommon. Hernán Cortés actually found many allies among the native tribes who were not happy with the Aztec rule and helped the Spanish to overthrow the Aztec empire.


Anyway, just forget what I wrote…..it is far better to think in black on white terms …. it makes pointing fingers easier.
