Cortez left, Captain Pedro Alvarado in charge, along with 200 of his men and left Tenochtitlan with the rest to battle Narvaez, although Cortez’s army smaller, he was able to overthrow Narvaez and convince him to ally with them too instead of fighting against him. However whilst he had been away Alvarado had become subject to a revolt due to a massacre during one of the religious ceremonies/festivals for the Aztecs. Alvarado had begun killing prominent members of the upper classes of the Aztecs in turn setting off a local rebellion. Cortez insisted that Moctezuma speak and reason with his people but this only resulted in the crowd throwing stones etc. at him and resulting in his death.
He spoke to a ghost, and this ghost stated that his father 's death was a murder, by the hand of his uncle, Claudius. "The serpent that did sting thy father 's life now wears his crown." Hamlet was astonished, and then swore vengeance for his father 's death. He then proceeded to try and prove his uncle 's guilt, and then finally kills him while he himself is dying of poisoned wounds inflicted by Laertes during their duel. This left the King dead, and his father 's
The reason why he got his mother killed was because she was plotting to kill him. ‘‘Nero didn’t trust his Praetorian Guard to carry out the killing, so he ordered naval troops to sink a boat that she would be sailing on.’’ When everyone knew that Agrippina died, he lied by saying that she committed suicide. He also poisoned his fourteen-year-old stepbrother, but told everyone he has an epileptic fit. After killing his mother, Nero had terrible nightmares. (Owen

Christopher Columbus was a disastrous leader who was motivated by his own personal greed of finding a westward passage into China and India. Throughout Christopher Columbus’s explorations; he ended up getting many Spaniards killed in an attempt to please his own motives. During Columbus’s first voyage, he ended up getting 39 of his sailors killed by his naïve thinking and lack of defensive planning amongst a foreign land and population. After his shocking discovery of his crew being killed on his newly established colony, Hispaniola, Christopher Columbus moved his people east in a more inhabitable part of the Caribbean. Again, this poor decision caused the lives of more Spaniards who were now dying of tropical disease such as malaria.

The negative effects were mostly the destruction of the empire; after three months of conflict Cortez had finally defeated the capital city of the Aztec Empire, Tenochtitlan (Tucker). Cuauhtémoc, the emperor, was taken captive and later that year he was executed, and Cortez became the ruler of the vast empire (Tucker). The Aztecs were highly vulnerable to European diseases unknown to their nation, such as smallpox and typhus; in 1521, smallpox annihilated the population of Tenochtitlan, two following epidemics wiped out 75 percent of the remaining population (Tucker). The surviving Aztecs were not allowed to learn of their native culture and were enforced to read and write in Spanish, unfortunately a wide range of the Aztec religion and culture were lost forever (Tucker). Some positive aspects were that the Spanish helped ‘modernize’ the civilization, they introduced them to domestic animals, sugar, grains and even European farming practices (Tucker).
This fact becomes apparent when Vicario brothers were forced to avenge the humiliation inflicted upon their family by performing an honor killing.

"Before God and before men," Pablo Vicario said.
Both of their fathers were unnecessarily killed. Prince Hamlet's father was killed by his father's brother for the crown and his wife, and Prince Hamlet killed Laertes' father, Polonius, over mistaken identity. It was the revenge of these two that made up the plot of the story in Hamlet. Laertes takes immediate action.
