Who helped Hernan Cortez?
Diego velaquez help Hernando cortez
Yes, they are, He can be known as Hernando, Hernan and even Fernando Cortes. Most people today know of him as Hernan Cortes. The spelling of Cortes with a z is wrong, he never spelt Cortes as Cortez during his lifetime, I can only think that this is an American spelling of the word, which seems to be taking over the whole Internet.
Hernan Cortez conquered the Aztec Empire in 1521, with the help of more than 200,000 Tlaxcalan allies -- who were bitter enemies of the Aztecs -- and a smallpox epidemic that decimated the Aztec population between 1519 and 1521. After the Fall of Tenochtitlan, central Mexico became part of the Spanish Empire, and Hernan Cortez became its first viceroy.
