Temples, pyramids, feathered snake gods called Quetzalcoatl and chocolate! What’s not to like? The Aztec empire lasted from the 14th to the 16th century in Mesoamerica. The word Aztecah means ‘people from Aztlan’ – which is in modern day Mexico. It’s time to write an awesome Aztec story.
Quetzalcoatl (the ‘feathered serpent’) is probably the most famous Aztec god. But don’t forget Tlaloc (the rain lord), Tezcatlipoca (the ‘Smoking Mirror’ who rules the night sky) and Huitzilopochtli (deity of war, sun and, er human sacrifice!)
