Summary
The legacy of Hernán Cortés, who famously conquered the formidable Aztec Empire, lives on to this day. This title traces his eventful life, introducing readers to an array of intriguing figures, such as Moctezuma, La Malinche, Cuautemoc, and Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar. Learn how important the alliances that Cortés made with the Aztecs native enemies proved and how the initially cordial relationship between the Spanish and the Aztecs deteriorated. The title explains how Cortés, like many conquistadors, became a polarizing figure in the centuries after his deeds and death and explores the reasons for the controversy surrounding him
