The Aztecs and Incas Brenda Luchetti Debbie Bailey James Mayse Will Clarke And EDM Aztec Empire The Aztecs were a Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican

people of central Mexico in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries who built an extensive empire in the late Postclassical period of Mesoamerican chronology. Aztec civilization and society possessed a vibrant culture which included mandatory education and rich and complex mythological and religious traditions. For Europeans, the most striking element of the Aztec culture was the practice of human sacrifice which was conducted throughout Mesoamerica prior to the Spanish conquest.

Inca Empire The Inca Empire was the largest empire in Pre-Columbian America, and one of the largest empires in the world at the time of its collapse. The administrative, political and military center of the empire was located in Cuzco. It arose from the highlands of Peru in 1197; from 1438 to

1533, the Incas used conquest and peaceful assimilation to incorporate a large portion of western South America, centered on the Andean mountain ranges, including large parts of modern Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile. Conquest of the Aztec Empire The nucleus of the Aztec Empire was the

Valley of Mexico, where their capital Tenochtitlan was built upon raised islets in Lake Texcoco. After the 1521 conquest and fall of Tenochtitlan by Spanish forces and their allies which brought about the effective end of Aztec dominion, the Spanish founded the new settlement of Mexico City on the site of the now-ruined Aztec capital. The capital of the modernday nation of Mexico, the greater metropolitan area of Mexico City now

covers much of the Valley of Mexico and Conquest of the Aztec Empire In what is probably the most widely known episode in the Spanish colonization of the Americas, Hernn Corts (Cortez) conquered the Aztecs in 1521 thus immortalizing himself and the Aztec Hueyi Tlatoani, Moctezuma II (Montezuma II).

Conquest of the Inca Empire In 1533, Atahualpa, the last Inca emperor (Sapa Inca) was killed on the orders of the conquistador Francisco Pizarro, marking the beginning of Spanish rule. The Inca Empire was organized in seoros (dominions) with a stratified society, in which the ruler was the Inca. It was also supported by an

economy based on the collective property of the land. In fact, the Inca Empire was conceived like an ambitious and audacious civilizing project, based on a mythical thought, in which the harmony of the relationships between the human being, Click on the following links to learn more about the Aztec and Inca Gods, their similarities and differences!

Pizarro made their moves on the Aztecs and Incas, respectively, and both brought on their downfall. Interestingly enough, Cortez was actually the second cousin of Francisco Pizarro. Both Cortez and Pizarro used religion to their advantage, by justifying their action in the name of Christianity. Both Conquistadors defeated newly founded totalitarian empires; in other words, the Aztecs and Incans had only recently dominated the area. This most likely set the stage for a mentality of the oppressed

(i.e. the natives were used to the idea of being under imperial native rule, and now were under imperial colonial rule- no big leap of governmental systems - so rebellions were easily kept to a minimum) Added notes: Pizarro Complete this Powerpoint on Pizarro, based on the lecture notes.
