Aztecs faced a vast number of difficulties in the upbringing of their new domain. Before all else, they trekked through the deserts of South America by command of their war god, Huitzilopochtli.
The fall of the Aztec and Inca empires depended on many factors. These factors included strategic advances from the Spanish that would essentially allow the smaller, Spanish troops to successfully slaughter the vast amount of Aztec and Inca troops, and advanced weaponry that these empires did not have. One of these strategic advances was successfully attempting to make indigenous allies. These great and powerful empires outnumbered the Spanish, but their lack of weaponry and technology resulted in the fall of the empires. The fall of the Aztec was primarily led by Hernan Cortes while the fall of the Inca was led by Francisco Pizarro.
But soon the Spanish came over and that all came to an end. Along with the Spanish came foreign disease that decimated both populations. When the Spanish came into contact with these civilizations, they tried to spread their religion, Catholicism. In the process of the Spaniards trying to conquer the Aztecs and the Incas, both Cortés and Pizarro took the leaders, Motecuhzoma and Atahuallpa, hostage. Both Motecuhzoma and Atahuallpa offered a large quantity of treasures in hopes of being released but the Spaniards took the treasures and did not release them.

Most small armies would not have been able to dismantle such a large and expansive empires. Despite that, they still eradicated the Incas and Aztecs.
Throughout the late 1400’s and the 1500’s, the world experienced many changes due to the discoveries of new lands and peoples that had been never been visited before. The new-found lands of the Americas and exploration of Africa by the Europeans led to new colonies and discoveries in both areas. It also brought different societies and cultures together that had never before communicated, causing conflict in many of these places. While the Europeans treated both the Native Americans and West Africans as inferior people, the early effects they had on the Native Americans were much worse. Beginning in the late 1400’s, many different European explorers started to look for new trade routes in the Eastern Hemisphere in order to gain economic and religious power.
The causes for the development of past human societies is a topic widely debated by scientist and historians alike. Ideas such as racism, geography, and pure luck have clashed in desperate attempts to solve the mysteries associated with Yali 's Question: "Why is it that you white people developed so much cargo and brought it to New Guinea, but we black people had little cargo of our own?" (Diamond 14) In Jared Diamond 's Pultzer Prize winning and New York Times Bestselling novel Guns, Germs, and Steel, he attempts to lay the foundation for understanding human history since the evolution of the Homo-Saipan in Central Africa. The causes for the development of past human societies are directly linked to the geography of the Earth in allowing the generation of Guns, Germs, and Steel to create complex states.
The Great Inca Rebellion impacted the history of Peru and the whole Central and south American history. The Incas were the romans of the new world and made a huge impact on everything. They created Machu Picchu and had great advantages such as their horses for mobility and their steel weapons for fighting.

Fear was a major factor in the increasing power of these empires. Both empires used fear as a way to gain more land, increasing their empire. The Aztecs were feared for their strong warriors and human sacrifices to their gods. The military power of the Aztecs helped them in conquering the surrounding tribes. While this empire was growing, they contracted an alliance with the Tepanec tribe.

The Aztecs were centralized in military and were stronger than the other neighbors around them. That’s why they had their empire on top because they were better fighters than their enemies. They required tribute payments, forced labor, and large scale of human sacrifices towards the enemies around them.
As the Spanish colonial system was dismantled in the 19th century, power transitioned from Peninsulares to wealthy Criollos, and the gleaming concern of the “Indian Problem” prevailed among the indigenous population. The conquistadors conquered Latin American and among them the Inca Empire, a great empire that brought under its governance several distinct indigenous groups. The Spanish forwent replacing a governing body for these people but instead brought forth a monarchy that disregarded the native peoples as citizens. With wealthy and power now in the hands of the criollo elite, indigenous peoples were living in a form of feudalism; the elite owned the land while the Indians worked it. Jose Carlos Mariátegui, a native of Peru, became a revolutionary force for indigenous people of South America, specifically Peru in the early 20th century.
