Mexico by nahual4004 Mexico by nahual4004

Mexican mortal battle.



A fight where nobody would survive; in the prehispanic age, the Mexicas had arrived so late to get their own land around the Anahuac valley´s lake that they became mercenaries who worked for several kingdoms, but they were always dropped from any place they lived, there was only a little island in the lake, whose owner was a powerful sorcerer whom the kingdoms were afraid of. So Tezozomoc, Azcapotzalco´s king, who was the most powerful leader in those days, said to the Mexicas that if they defeated the sorcerer and got the island in his name, he would let them live permanently as a town part of his kingdom. That proposal was good but even the mexicas were afraid of the sorcerer who had the coatli, a giant serpent as allied. Then Huitzilopochtli, the Mexicas god, entrusted the task to a warrior named Cuauhtlequetzqui (blooded eagle) because he was really brave and strong to fight the sorcerer and his allied. For this fight Cuauhtlequetzqui had the great honor to fight together with the huey Cuauhtli (the eagles king). When the sorcerer was defeated, the Mexicas settle his town in that little island that later would become the Tenochtitlan city and nowadays is Mexico City.
Hope you like it!!!!!




Pelea mortal en México.



Una pelea donde nadie saldrá vivo. En la época prehispánica los mexicas habían llegado tarde al Valle de México y no tenían tierra propia en ningún lugar alrededor del gran lago del Anáhuac. Por tener un lugar entre los pueblos se habían convertido en mercenarios, pero siempre terminaban por ser echados de cualquier lugar, solo había un pequeño islote dentro del lago donde el dueño era un poderoso mago al que temían los demás pueblos. Entonces Tezozomoc, rey de Azcapotzalco, que entonces era el pueblo más poderoso del Anahuac dijo a los mexicas que si vencían al poderoso mago y conquistaban esa isla para su reino, los dejaría vivir en ella como un pueblo parte de su reino. La propuesta era buena pero incluso los mexicas que eran grandes guerreros temían al mago que tenía como aliada a la gran coatli, una serpiente gigante. Entonces Huitzilopochtli el dios principal de los mexicas encomendó a un guerrero al que llamaban Cuauhtlequetzqui (águila ensangrentada) por ser en verdad valiente y muy fuerte que fuera a combatir al poderoso mago y su aliada. Para la batalla Cuauhtlequetzqui recibió el gran honor de pelear junto a la huey Cuauhtli (el águila rey). Al acabar con el gran mago las mexicas se asentaron en ese pequeño islote donde construirían la gran ciudad de Tenochtitlan que actualmente es la ciudad de Mexico.
Espero les guste!!!!!
