The
 Effect
 of
 Historical,
 Political,
 and
 Religious
 Experiences
 on
 the
 Spanish
 Conquest
 
By
 Nish
 Ravichandran
 

 

 

There
 was
 a
 great
 amount
 of
 difference
 between
 the
 Spanish
 and
 Mexica
 

populations’
 historical
 experiences,
 political
 structures,
 and
 religious
 roles.
 As
 a
 result,
 the
 
Spanish
 conquest
 of
 the
 Mexica
 and
 the
 Aztec
 civilization
 from
 1519-­‐1521
 is
 a
 complex
 
topic
 that
 has
 been
 the
 subject
 of
 varied
 and
 sometimes
 acrimonious
 debate.
 While
 some
 try
 
to
 condense
 the
 conquest
 and
 portray
 it
 as
 the
 result
 of
 one
 of
 the
 aforementioned
 topics,
 it
 
seems
 that
 the
 Spanish
 subjugation
 of
 the
 Mexica
 population
 was
 in
 fact
 the
 result,
 in
 part,
 
of
 an
 intertwining
 of
 all
 three
 of
 these
 areas.
 Historical
 experiences
 shaped
 both
 sides’
 
approach
 to
 war
 and
 how
 they
 waged
 it;
 Spanish
 experiences
 in
 war
 and
 their
 use
 of
 
infantry
 prepared
 them
 quite
 while
 for
 Mesoamerica,
 while
 the
 Mexicans’
 historical
 
reluctance
 to
 fight
 long,
 open
 battles
 served
 as
 a
 detriment.
 Similarly,
 the
 difference
 in
 
political
 structures
 between
 the
 two
 sides
 greatly
 affected
 their
 respective
 expansionary
 
policies,
 leading
 to
 several
 points
 of
 conflict
 that
 the
 Spanish
 exploited
 to
 a
 great
