Introduction to Aztec Empire:

Political control of the crowded and agronomically rich focal valley of Mexico fell into disarray after 1100. Bit by bit expecting ever-more prominent force were the Aztecs, most likely a northern tribe that had moved to the valley and involved a minor town on the shore of the immense focal lake. They were a general public that esteemed the aptitudes of warriors most importantly others, and this accentuation gave them favourable position against adversary tribes in the locale. Before the end of the fifteenth century, the Aztecs controlled all of focal Mexico as a military realm that gathered tribute from adversaries.

The Aztec society drew upon the experience of those that preceded it and designed little that was new. They had a propelled agribusiness that bolstered a substantial populace. They manufactured enormous structures of excellent plan and prospered in numerous expressions. They were skilled metal labourers, yet had no iron. Without any suitable draft creature, they made no rationale utilization of the wheel.

One of the unmistakable components of the Aztec society was its inclination for penance. Aztec myths directed that human blood be nourished to the Sun to give it the quality to rise every day. Human penances were directed on a stupendous scale; a few thousand in a solitary day were not exceptional.

They went on no critical innovation or thoughts of religion or political hypothesis. Their human advancement was conveyed to an unexpected end by the landing of the Spanish in the mid sixteenth century. As of now crushed by European sickness went by right on time brokers, they tumbled to a little Spanish armed force equipped with steel weapons, guns, and riding a couple steeds. The savagery of the Aztecs added to their ruin by making it simple for the Spanish to enrol associates among the non-Aztecs in Mexico.
