Aztec Empireball, also known as the Triple Allianceball
History[edit | edit source]
The Aztecballs were one of the most civilized and powerful people in pre-Columbian America. They occupied themselves the Valley of Mexico (on an island of Lake Texcoco), they came to this region, after a long and slow migration. They came from a place called Aztlan, situated in the southwest of present-day USAball, where they lived as nomadic warrior tribes. Since before the Christian Era, there were urban, sedentary, and agricultural civilizations in the region such as the Toltecballs.
The last to reach the world of the Mexican plateau was the Aztecballs that settled down and merged with the Toltecballs and from the alliance between the cities of Texcoco and Tlacopan, the "Aztec Empire" arose, having as its capital the Aztec city of Tenochtitlán. Each of the city-states had its own king, but the Aztecs had military command at the time of the Spanish occupation, and the immense empire recognized only one chief: Montezuma, the Aztec Emperor.
Its capital, Tenochtitlán (today Mexico City), had a population of 400,000 inhabitants, at that time, bigger than any European city, was a vast metropolis surrounded by water, as in Venice, with a labyrinth of channels that crossed in all directions), the Aztecs controlled a great empire that included almost all of central and southern Mexico. They were famous warriors, with a highly developed military organization.
But in 1521, Spanish Empireball killed him.
Nowadays, all of Aztec Empireball's clay belong to Mexicoball.
