Best Answer

When the Mexico (Aztecs) first encountered Cortes, they thought him to be from one of their prophecies. Giving the Spaniards permission to walk as they pleased through the whole empire.

Although they soon realized that they weren't really from the prophecy, they still didn't fight them until Cortes and his men started killing them. Mainly the Spanish were weak; if it weren't for the Tlaxcalan and many other native tribes the Spanish wouldn't have done well from the beginning.
