Politics itself was not a big determinant on how each person would dress. Politics and social classes go hand in hand when explaining the different clothing between people. The Aztec Empire consisted of different city-states, also known as altepetl, ruled by a king, tlatoani, and a supreme judge and administrator, cihuacoatl. The king had to come from a noble or royal family to be considered to be king and is his responsibility to rule all of the city- states for the rest of his life (Tarlton law…, 2016).

The slaughter of thousands of Native Americans was unnecessary brutality, committed to show dominance, and to enslave the few that remained alive. If it was not for these early settlers, the remaining Native Americans that live on modern reservations could be an integrated part of American society, and the bloodstain left behind from those tragedies would not
But what did this mean for a soldier in their time period? Even more lascivious than both the Eagle and Jaguar warriors, the men became almost nobility. As seen in the codex Mendoza, they would have brilliant banners of the general, gold ornamentation, and of further interest to the context is that the face paint and shield were symbolic of the gods of death. That makes sense, as specifically, the God of Death Mictlantecuhtli presides over the underworld and of death.

Abstract The Aztec Empire remains one of the most exciting yet powerful empires in the world 's history. The empire was originally made up of the Tenochtitlan city in the current day Mexico City. The city later combined with two more city states; Texcoco and Tracopan to form a Triple Alliance which ruled the Mexico Valley from 1428 until 1521 when they were overwhelmed by the joined forces of the Spanish conquistadores and their local supporters led by Hernan Cortes.
