The Aztec empire started around 1200 A.D and ended in the early 1500s when Hernan Cortes landed on Mexico's gulf coast. He and about 600 soldiers marched to Tenochtitlan, which they heard was filled with gold. The spainards tricked the Aztecs into signing treaties while making them join them. They treated them like slaves and killed 6 million Aztecs within 2 years. Thousands died from mistreatment and even more died from "White Man Diseases" such as the common cold and small pox.

I believe that the Aztec Empire began by the Aztec traveling for a place to settle then when they reached a place with an eagle sitting on a prickly pear cactus with a snake in its beak. The Aztec believed that that was a sign from their main God. Then the Aztec started to win wars and took their prisinors they got from war and forced them to be apart of they Aztec or they will get sacrafised.
