The Aztec empire was very prosperous during the time Spanish ships set shore on their land. Multiple factors lead to the fall of what was to become one of the most powerful and advanced civilisations in the world. Most of these contributors are likely unknown by the modern world, but there are some that we are sure caused the defeat of the Aztecs. The conflict and fall of the Aztec empire was unavoidable. Things such as human sacrifice, religion, and disease all played a part in the Aztec empire’s loss.

In this project there will be many points on how the Inca, Aztecs, and Mayans are different and similar like they both did sacrifices just not has often and different or how the aztecs and mayans live in CA and the Inca live in peru or how all of the tribes build pyramids. Similarities between Inca, Maya and aztecs So first lets take about how the Inca, Aztecs, and Mayan are similar.
As a young conquistador coming to a strange land that has a large pyramid with thousands of people surrounding it as they were chanting and yelling while looking toward the very top of the stairs that led to the top of the pyramid. You see people at the top and notice how they are cutting out the hearts of these human sacrifices and tossing them down the stairs. You stare in horror and notice what a terrible and cruel place you have come across. There was human sacrifice going on and gruesome wars over land that ultimately led to more and more death. But then you take another look around and see their agriculture and all the amazing irrigation systems they have set up and you 're completely shocked about how well their farming systems are.
The Aztecs began as a northern tribe whose name came from a valley known as Aztlan, which was the name of their homeland. They appeared in Mesoamerica, today known as the south central region of Mexico, in the 13th century. There, the Aztecs built their proud city, Tenochtitlan. It was the heart of the Aztec civilization. The Aztec emperor didn’t rule every city state.
The rise of the Aztecs and Mongol Empire 's had a large impact on the areas they inhabited the religions they Ocuvite had been completely Concord and affected by the invasions of these empires both as Tech and Mongols were very similar in many aspects such as their goal to gain more power in Lynn even though the Aztecs the Mongol shared many similarities in their ward tactics they had many differences referring to religious and technological hierarchs aspect
The conflict and defeat of the Aztecs was not avoidable because the Spanish were looking for gold and land, and would have eventually come into contact with the Aztecs no matter who found the land of Tenochtitlan first. Since the Aztecs had everything the Spaniards wanted, it was likely that a battle between the two was bound to happen. In war the Spanish had a large advantage because of their weapons and battle gear. If the Aztecs came into contact with the Spanish, they were likely to die because of the disease the Spaniards carried with them. Also, a lot of enemies were created against the Aztecs because of the human sacrifices they had to make in order to nourish their gods.
did not succeed. In the Aztec, Inca, and Mayan Empire they did succeed at making them into servants and forced labor. Another difference is that the Europeans forced the Incas and Aztecs to change their religion and become Catholic. They sent a lot of Franciscans to convert Indians to their new religion. On the other hand, The Mississippi Valley Tribes were not forced to change their beliefs.
The Mayan, Incan and Aztec are generally considered influential societies, but there is still sound debate on whether or not they should be considered civilizations. Seeing as these Early Americans had much of the same qualities as modern civilization and in fact laid the groundwork upon which we have built our own great civilization, it's fair to say they were worthy of the title civilization. However, not only where these people befitting of the honorific of civilization, their great accomplishments actually validate them to the point of being considered advanced. Religion, architecture, and intellectual achievements, are all tell-tale signs of an advanced civilization, and the Incan, Mayan, and Aztecs were comprised of these and much more.
In 1438 AD the Inca Empire started to flourish throughout South America. Over the next 50 years it spread to places that we now know as Peru, Bolivia, northern Argentina, Chile, and Ecuador. Earlier, contemporary Andean traditions, in particular the Wari civilisation and ancient Tiwanaku civilisation, influenced the Inca religion immensely. But the Inca empire was very short lived as it only lasted from 1438 to 1532 AD, just short of 100 years.
The Inca Empire was one of the biggest empires in pre-Columbian America and maybe one of the largest empires in the world in the early 16th century. The political and military center of the empire was located in Cusco Peru. The Inca Empire began in some of the highlands in Peru during the early 13th century. Its last strong building was conquered by the Spanish in 1572. From 1438-1533, the Incas used many methods to gain up a large portion of western South America, in the middle of the Andean mountain ranges.
Each tribe or empire of the Americas had their own unique technique or style that made them different. Regardless of their differences, they all were superior in their own ways and they each made a customized mark on history. The following paper will be summarizing things from each tribe or empire. For example, government or religion. There were four tribes/empires that made up the tribes of the Americas.
The conquistadors were people who were way more advanced than Europe thought. But they still were defeated very easily due to their lack of weapons. And when they invited people into their kingdom, but they were betrayed and their leader was captured. These events are very important in the turning of the history. This is very important because of the overthrowing of the Aztec empire.
