This website will present a brief history of Aztec culture and provide a timeline and chart showing the rise and fall of their empire during the 14th to 16th century.
As a free service to help promote Aztec websites, businesses and organizations using the Aztec name will be invited to add a link to our database later in June 2008. The Aztecs were the Native Americans who had political and military control over the northern part of Mexico in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries.
They were a nomadic culture that finally established themselves on several small islands in Lake Texcoco.
