Montezuma II was the ninth and arguably most famous of the rulers of the Aztec empire, who was in power at the time of the Spanish arrival and subsequent conquest of Technochtitlan. During his reign, the Aztec empire swelled to its largest size, and he expanded the Aztec military and put down several rebellions. Early encounters with the Spanish conquerors led Montezuma to welcome the armed men into his city, but despite popular beliefe Montezuma knew Hernan was an ordinary man and not a god, he possibly allowed the spanish to enter the city so he can keep a closer eye on the invaders or maybe to make allies of the Spanish to help conquer the Yacatan. Montezuma was eventually kidnapped and held hostage by Cortes to established a puppet government, and the situation deteriorated for the Aztecs. Montezuma was killed by Hernan Cortes when he was deemed useless in the spanish conquest of the Aztecs. Besieged on all sides by the Spanish and their indian allies (who helped the Spanish in order to be freed by Aztec rule) and ridden with disease, Tenochtitlan succumbed to the invaders shortly afterward, ending the glory of the Aztec empire in one shockingly brutal campaign.
Battle vs. Boudica (by KevlarNinja)Edit
In a clearing in the jungles of Mexico, Moctezuma and four of his warriors (two Aztec Jaguars and two Eagle warriors) are resting on their way back to the capital. Suddely, they hear screaming from an open field. It's Boudica and four of her celts (two unarmored, two with armor) attacking. One Celt picks up a sharp rock and puts it in his war sling. He charges, yelling, and launches the stone. It flies through the air and hits a Jaguar in the eye.
The remaining Jaguar places an Atlatl on his Tlacochtli. He launches it through the air. It hit's the Sling Celt, stabbing through his unarmored chest. The Celts and Aztecs charge at each other. For defence, Moctezuma picks up a Chimalli shield and a Cuahololli Axe. One armored Celt throws a Lancea, which impales an Eagle warrior.
The other Eagle warrior bashes the Celt on the head with his Tepoztopilli, knocking off the Celts helmet. The Aztec proceeds to bash the Celt on the temple. One unarmored Celt slashes the Eagle warrior's throat with his sword.
The remaining Jaguar cuts off the Celt's hand with his Maquahuitl. The Celt grabs his bloodly stump. The Aztec finishes him off by slashing his jugular. Boudica sneaks up behind the Jaguar and uses her Burda to smash the Aztec's temple in.
An armored Celt charges at Moctezuma. The celt slashes with his sword, but the Aztec ruler ducks. Moctezuma swings his Cuahololli. It gashes the celt in the eye. Boudica and Moctezuma find each other. Boudica does an overhead swing with her club. Moctezuma tries to block with his Chimalli, but the Burda smashes it to peices. Boudica wacks Moctezuma in the face, knocking him to the ground. She then stomps the emperor on the chest. Moctezuma choughs up some blood. Boudica holds the club in the air and shouts in victory.
Boudica's superior metallurgy and larger physical size, combined with her intimidating approach to battle, was more than enough to contribute to her victory over the Aztec emperor.
The sound of war beckoned the Aztecs as Montezuma has gathered a squad of Aztec warrior to scout the nearby lake, where Pemulwuy and 4 Aboriginal warriors were training with their weapons. The reason the Aztecs were there was they didn't sacrificed any enemy soldier to their gods and Montezuma was sure that bad times will come. After few steps Montezuma and his Aztec warriors spotted the Aboriginals and Montezuma ordered them to ready their tematlatls and as the hurled the rocks they got lucky and killed one of the Aboriginals.
Pemulwuy and his Aboriginal warriors noticed the Aztecs and threw their spears from the woomeras missing the all of Montezuma's Aztecs. the Aboriginal took their hatchets and spears and charged at the Aztecs, only Pemulwuy threw his wooden spear from the woomera and with luck pierced one of the Aztecs in the throat.
Than both sides clashed as every Aboriginal fought against an Aztec warrior and there were any of the warriors that got an advantage, except that one of the Aztecs slammed his maquahuitl and while the wooden shield saved the Aboriginal's arm, he was horrifically wounded, because his shoulder was smashed and there was obsidian chunks stuck there. Than Pemulwuy shouted to all of his Aboriginals to retreat, but Montezuma and his Aztec soldiers followed them, and they followed them even more near the lake's tall grass and one of the Aztecs was smacked in the head by a flying boomerang, the boomerang hit his forehead, crushing his skull and killing him.
Than a stone spear flew and nearly missed the Aztec emperor, since the Aztecs located the aboriginals, Montezuma told them to ambush them, as the Aboriginals waited the Aztec jumped into the tall grass and one of them decapitated the already wounded Aboriginal with his maquahuitl.
Another Aboriginal had his head smashed by Montezuma himself using his cuaholli club. but the other Aboriginal stabbed him from behind at his leg. Montezuma cried from pain and his Aztec warriors immediately came to rescue as the Aboriginal was preparing to stab him in the guts, he was stopped by Montezuma's warriors, which one of them sacrificed his life because he was impaled by the stone spear.
Moments later Pemulwuy arrived, wielding his hatchet and wooden shield. Also Montezuma got up and pulled his tecpatl dagger and gave a war cry, while Pemulwuy's last soldier was was brutally beaten to death by the cuaholli club , which was dropped when Montezuma had fallen wounded at the lake. Than Pemulwuy engaged the last Aztec warrior, which smashed Pemulwuy shield to mere planks, but Pemulwuy acted fast and sliced the Aztec's throat with his hatchet.
Than Pemulwuy charged at Montezuma, and while he swung his hatchet, Montezuma ducked below and stabbed him in the stomach. As Pemulwuy fell down from pain, Montezuma turned him and use his tecpatl, he opened Pemulwuy chest, ripping his still beating heart.
Than Montezuma stood up and raised the heart and and shouted "For Quetzacoatl!", and once the peaceful lake, was now turned into grave for Aztec and Aboriginal warriors
While Pemulwuy was superior leader and tactician, Montezuma's cotton armor, weapons and troops were superior to Pemulwuy, bare in mind that the obsidian weapons are more devastating than the regular stone.
