Did Hernando Cortes accomplish his goals?

Most certainly.His goal was to conquer the Aztecs in the name of the Spanish Empire. Though his initial military attack in 1518 failed (he may have had guns, but not numbers), he unintentionally unleashed smallpox on Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital (now Mexico City), which made it possible for swift military victory (Cortes thought the smallpox had been sent by God). He thus established a reputation as the most brutal of the Conquistadores.
