The Aztecs first emerged in Mexican history as a nomadic tribe in Northern Mexico. When the Aztecs saw an eagle perched on a cactus, they took it as a sign from the gods that they should settle in that area. So they established their capital city of Tenochtitlan in 1325 A.D. The Aztecs ruled their empire with an iron fist from Tenochtitlan, until Spanish conquistadors arrived in the early 1500s. Hernan Cortes conquered the Aztec empire in 1521, building Mexico City on the city's ruins. #3B
