Montezuma was the ruler of the Aztecs. Aztecs lived in Mexico around the 1400s to 1500s. They were an advanced civilization. Their religion seemed brutal to us but normal to them. Their clothes and customs have changed. Aztecs lived where southern Mexico is today. Tenochtitlan was their capital until Spain came around. Due to their religion and customs, Hernando Cortez, leader of the Spanish Conquest, was believed to be a white god. He made Montezuma prisoner and captured Tenochtitlan and renamed it Mexico City. Sacrificing people to gods was a normal thing. They would sacrifice slaves and prisoners. That is why they waged war with people.
Usually, they cut the heart out of a living victim. They thought if you ate someone’s flesh, you obtained their courage. Every 52 years, they had a new beginning. They would light a fire on someone’s chest who is alive, then people put their blood on it so they could become part of it. Very much do you hear of their culture today and very few people can speak their language. Their clothes and ways have changed. Their culture was advanced, large, and successful for a period of time.
