Aztecs Collection

The Aztecs were an indigenous people in central Mexico from the 14th to the 16th century. Their cultural peak was the Aztec Empire, also known as the Mexica Empire, which was founded in the 15th century and conquered by the Spanish under Hernán Cortés in 1521.

Significant Aztec features include the capital Tenochtitlán with advanced architecture, a well-organised political hierarchy led by a “Huey Tlatoani” (ruler), a polytheistic religion with human sacrifice, advanced agricultural practices and an extensive trade network. The Spanish conquest led to the colonisation of Mexico, which influenced or destroyed many aspects of Aztec culture. Nevertheless, some elements of Aztec culture have survived in Mexican society to this day and characterise its identity.
