Aztec History

The Aztec Empire history begins when the nomadic people first came from the north into the Valley of Mexico in the 1200's.

They settled and built their city on an island and began the city of Tenochitlan. They created relationships with the surrounding peoples, but had to conquering others. This was the start of  the Aztec Empire which ran from 1300 to 1500 CE.

In the year 1519 the Spanish landed and thus began the fall of the Aztec Empire. There are many factors which allowed the Spanish leader Hernan Cortes to defeat the Aztecs.
