Aztec – The History of the Aztecs?
According to Wikipedia, the Aztecs were Native American people who lived in Mesoamerica. They ruled the Aztec Empire from the 14th to 16th century.
The name “Aztec” comes from the phrase “people from Aztlan”. Legends say that Aztlan was the first place the Aztecs ever lived. “Aztlan” means “place of the herons in the Nahuatl language.
Often the term “Aztec” refers just to the people of Tenochitilan. This was a city on an island n Lake Texcoco. These people called themselves the Mexica, which is why the country is called Mexicio, or the Nahua, which is why their language is called Nahuatl.
Before the Aztec Empire existed, the indigenous (native) people lived in many separate city-states. These were small cities with farmland around them. Each state had its own ruler. Around 1100 AD, these city-states started to fight each other for power and control of the area’s poor.
Historians think the Aztecs came to central Mesoamerica around 1200. They came from what is now northwest Mexico.
