A meeting between Spaniards and Aztecs (after Codex Durán)
1519 AD to 1521 AD
These two years saw fierce political maneuvering by Spain to make allies of other tribes in order to conquer the Aztecs. Warfare ravaged the city of Tenochtitlan. Finally, after a long siege, the Aztecs gave up and Spain now ruled "New Spain".
