Aztec Project

                    Story of the Aztecs
Once there was a city far away in the Desert.These people were called the Aztecs.Their climate was a lot different then our.The Aztec thought they ruled the whole world but it was actually a small part of mexico.One day the king had a feeling that something really bad was going to happen.Later that day it was hundreds of men riding on horses into the Aztec empire.People were just staring at cortez because they never seen horse before so they crowded around them.They were wondering who they were and where they came from.Cortez and his people just rode through the cities and we're looking at all there stuff.They didn't now that the only reason cortez came was to come get gold and rule their city.                                                                  











He meet the king Montozuma and they gave him gold and welcomed him.Cortez wanted more gold than what they gave him.Montezuma noticed something weird about Cortez he knew he was really cruel and mean.He was being really careful and warned his empire about the cruel Cortez being in the empire.They had feast just for the people and welcomed him with many things.As Cortez was there he learned there religon.How they had many diffrent gods.Some for death and some for life.He learned how they had diffrent gods how they had a pyrimid.First was the ruler and all the improtant people.then second was the scribes and ect.The last was poor people.They didnt call them slaves.The poor had to do farm work.They also had to live out of the city.


           

Montezuma then said that he could have part of being a ruler.Cortez did not like any of this.So he told his solders to put him in jail.Cortez and his people wrote out letters telling people that Montuzoma was doing bad things.They tried to make lies up all the time.One day all the people got mad and diddn’t believe them so they broke out fighting cortez and his people.Lots of people died in this fight they all fought just to get what was happening.Then cortez made montuzuma come out to tell his people to stop fighting.Then they stopped.

Cortez heard that some people were coming to get him he went to go hide and left his friend Alvarado in charge.But he messed up.While Alvarado was in charge he got mad at some of the people in the city and killed them.When Cortez came back Alvarado told him what he did,Cortez was mad for a little while but was happy later on and forgave him later on.

While Montezuma was in jail he asked Cortez if he gave him his gold could he come out cortez said ok.Then Montezuma gave Cortez his gold.Then cortez still did not let him out,but took his gold.Montezuma eventually did in jail.Still today people still don't know how he died.Later on people heard about this and we're trying to run away.Lots of people ran to the temple in the afternoon.some were running at the night.Cortez heard that people were running away so he closed the three ways to get out the city
Before ,that they were fighting just to get out of the city lots of people died in this too.These people were stuck there for 80 days.They had no food or nothing.They would drink the dirty water and eat animals like frogs and ect.Cortez also brand a disease to the aztecs people called the smallpox and some people died of of that.They died from starvation and some from the small pox also.

Cortes was a bad person who seemed to only like gold.He killed many innocent people who did nothing but do what they did.He killed all these people just for gold.


                                                                THE END!
