Moctezuma II (c. 1466 – June 1520) was the ninth ruler of Tenochtitlan, reigning from 1502 to 1520. The first contact between Indigenous civilizations of Mesoamerica and Europeans took place during his reign, and he was killed during the initial stages of the Spanish conquest of Mexico. During his reign the Aztec Empire reached its maximal size.
The portrayal of Moctezuma in history has mostly been colored by his role as ruler of a defeated nation.
He had eight daughters and eleven sons.
