Overview

The Spanish explorer Hernando Cortes is a very controversial figure. To some people, he was heroic. Even though he was greatly outnumbered, he was able to defeat the Aztec Emperor Montezuma and conquer the Aztec empire because of his personal courage and leadership abilities. The Aztec empire was centered in modern-day Mexico. Its religion was based on human sacrifice. Cortes replace it with Christianity.

To others, including many Mexicans, he was a villain because he destroyed the Aztecs' way of life. They believed he was a cruel man. He was also a symbol of Spanish domination. When Mexico became indepent from Spain in 1821, its people tried to remove their memories of him. Either way, one thing is certain. Hernando Cortes was one of the most important figures in the history of the New World.
