Hernandez Cortes, Spanish conquistador, 16th century

Hernandez Cortes, Spanish conquistador, 16th century. Cortes (1485-1547) arriving in Mexico followed by his black servant and preceeded by La Malinche, his interpreter and mistress. Landing in Mexico in 1519, with a force of only some 600 men, Cortes succeeded in overthrowing the empire of the Aztecs, a civilization numbering 5 million. He was able to achieve this partly due to the natives being terrified of the Europeans horses and firearms, neither of which they had seen before. In addition, the Aztecs believed a prophecy that they would be visited by a light-skinned bearded god, the Quetzalcoatl, who had taught them agriculture and government in the past, and whose return they were to welcome with great ceremony. Cortes was able to exploit his resemblance to the Quetzalcoatl to great effect. From the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris
