    He was exited to show the city to the king of spain
    The city was destroyed during the battle after Cuauhtémoc refused to surrender and ordered his warriors to keep fighting despite Cortes trying to negotiate with him
    He could have saved Tenochtitlán if he agreed to become a client king of the Spanish empire but Cuauhtémoc decided he would rather see the city burn

        It comes from Diaz, so I believe it. It's more that his religious advisors made him think they would win than his pride stopping it. I don't know well it would have gone without the whole gold mountain thing that didn't actually exist, though.

          That’s because of black legend propaganda

          Artillery (from one side) alone doesn't raze a city to the ground. The city was dismantled after the battle was over, it's temples' stones were used to build new churches and monasteries that could've been built in the already existing infrastructure... Sad.

            Yo moron, they had to slowly siege the city. Bit by bit.

            The Spanish soldiers were considered to be in rebellion by the governor in Cuba
            They literally couldn’t go back unless they had something to show for it

            This wasn't fricking Verdun, sieging just doesn't raze cities.

            tenochtitlan was mostly huts which spaniards burned down individually because they were separated by canals and housed aztec resistance
            wild urban warfare
            also spaniards flooded tenochtitlan by breaking aztec dams and stuff

            The only time Spain had a super unfavorable battle was in the cramped narrow streets/rooftops of Tenochtitlan during the Noche Triste. Only makes sense to avoid giving your opponent favourable terrain.

    The Siege of Tenochtitlan was fought in a way that recquired the spaniards to destroy basically every individual building, and obviously they weren't gonna keep the remaining pagan temples around

      You're also forgetting the detail that a giant warrior defended the city too. They had to use artillery to even hurt him.

      Initially, the idea was to get them to convert and join Spanish feudal society. His second in command was the one who chimped out and forced his hand.

      He didn't. He only regretted that the Spanish Crown consolidating power in the region meant that his framework of society built by he and his Indian allies would be replaced by the whim of the King and Queen of Spain. He knew that everything he worked for would be thrown away.

      Can you prove that it were Spaniards and not the txacaltecans who destroyed Tenochtitlan? Because txacaltecans were slaves and had been opressed by aztecas for centuries...and they probably needed revenge.

      >le tlaxcaltecs and neighboring tribes were innocent and dindu nuffin! Aztecs invented human sacrifice!
      Everyone practiced slavery and human sacrifice in the region. EVERYONE.

      Cortez "saving" the tlaxcalans from le ebil Aztecs is a bullshit narrative they made up to save them from Spanish authorities. They were legally considered outlaws/rogues and came up with that shit in order to justify disobeying the Cuban governor. Cortez toppled one slaver empire and filled the power vacuum with other slavers who bent the knee to him. Nothing more, nothing less.

      Do we really know who caused most of the destruction?
      I find it hard to believe 300 people caused a whole cities destruction and not the 1000 of native allies they had.
      It was probably them who actually destroyed most of the city in a vengeance moment.

      Tenochtitlan still existed for centuries after it was conquered. The city ceased to exist in the late 17th century when the surrounding lakes were drained in order to expand urban development. Much of the original pagan temples were demolished and stones were reused to build churches and government buildings.

        It was literally what happened, even if the tlaxcalans would have done the same if they were on the aztecs position, stop coping

      You're thinking of Bernal Diaz.
      >" . . . we were astounded. These great towns and cues and buildings rising from the water, all made of stone, seemed like an enchanted vision from the tale of Amadis. Indeed, some of our soldiers asked whether it was not all a dream. It is not surprising therefore that I should write in this vein. It was all so wonderful that I do not know how to describe this first glimpse of things never heard of, seen or dreamed before. . . . But today all that I then saw is overthrown and destroyed; nothing is left standing."

      Tlaxcala had been at war with the Aztecs for less than a century by 1519. And they were a fully sovereign, hegemonic state, which by the time Cortez arrived, happened to be losing a war against a fellow hegemonic state that happened to be stronger. They were by no means oppressed "slaves".

      There were over a thousand spaniards at the siege of Tenochtitlan, who themselves recorded that most the city was destroyed for tactical reasons during the siege.
