Prescott lived from 1796-1859 and his book was a pioneering view of the Aztec civilization. The country of the ancient Mexicans or Aztecs, as they were known, formed but a very small part of the extensive territories which make up modern Mexico. The story of the life of Hernando Cortes, the Conqueror and the tragic story of Montezuma the Aztec king are essential to this history.
