Hernán Cortés and the Conquest of Mexico – Part 5

La Noche Triste

In Part 5 in our series on Hernán Cortés and the Conquest of Mexico, Cortés must deal with threats from the recently arrived Panfilo de Narvaez, and an uprising in Tenochtitlan. Things will end with the La Noche Triste – the Night of Sorrows (hint: that’s won’t end well for the Spanish).

Below is a map of Tenochtitlan at the time of Cortés arrival in 1519.
