Summary

Explore the Captivating History and Mythology of the Aztec! 
Nothing remains of the ancient Mesoamerican civilization who called themselves the Mexica, better known to us as the Aztecs. Nothing except for their remarkable story. In this audiobook, we discuss their enigmatic origins and how the Aztecs rose from nomadic tribes to the dominant power in Mesoamerica at an astounding speed. You’ll wander the streets of their great capital city of Tenochtitlán, known as “the Venice of the New World” among the Spanish Conquistadors, who spread the term all over Europe. You’ll discover the full extent of the city’s splendour, visiting its many market stalls, smelling fresh chocolate and vanilla pods. You’ll indulge in a taste of ripe, hand-picked avocados and freshly baked corn tortillas, as you decipher Náhuatl, the language spoken by the 50,000 merchants who visited Tenochtitlán every day.
You’ll probably wonder how this great city, built in the middle of a lake and isolated by two of Mexico’s highest mountains, Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl, could ever be defeated. From the arrival of the first Spaniards in 1519 to the eventual fall of the Aztec empire, we’ll talk you through the major battles that eventually led to its fall. We’ll uncover lies and deceptions in the alliance with their neighbouring cities of Tetzcoco and Tlacopan. We’ll also look at Aztec legacy on the world today: how Tenochtitlán became the basis for the capital of the New World and evolved into today’s Mexico City.

Interesting, very nice book.

This book should be read by all, even the hobbyist on the UFO subject and especially by Urologist, and skeptics alike. I couldn't recommend this book enough. 10/10

Easily accessible introduction

The narrator is clear and concise, but I would have liked a more thorough explanation.

Fascinating

Any additional comments?

This AUDIObook should be among the first books to listen if anyone is going to know the true Anahuaca (Mexican and "Central American") history. The writer does a good job in discussing major religious phases and History.
