How Did Hernan Cortes Conquered The Aztecs?

Cortés’s conquest against the powerful Aztec kingdom was helped along by viruses, firearms, and horses. Hernán Cortés captured Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec empire, in the year 152. Despite the fact that the Aztecs outnumbered the Spanish, he was able to do it. 1.

Conquistadors from Spain led by Hernán Cortés formed an alliance with indigenous peoples in order to take Tenochtitlan, the capital city of the Aztec empire. The Spanish were able to take control of Tenochtitlan because to their superior armament as well as a terrible outbreak of smallpox that occurred during the 93 days that Cortés’ army laid siege to the city.
