Magellan sailed around the world, Coronado searched for the Seven Cities of Gold, and Balboa crossed the Isthmus of Panama to find the Pacific Ocean on the other side. But none had a greater impact on world history than Hernando Cortez and his conquest of the Aztec Empire. By 1519, when Cortez arrived, the Aztecs had conquered most of what we now call Mexico and established a tribute-based empire head-quartered in Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City). Cortez allied himself with the Aztecs' long-time enemy, the Confederacy of Tlaxcala, eventually defeating the Aztecs and integrating Mexico into the Spanish Empire. Henty's story revolves around a shipwrecked Englishman by the name of Roger Hawkshaw. Based loosely on the real-life adventures of a Francisan friar by the name of GerĂ³nimo de Aguilar, Hawkshaw learns the native languages and culture, and later becomes an invaluable aide to Cortez. By Right of Conquest is a fascinating story in which Henty has no qualms about describing the barbarity of both the Aztecs and the Spaniards.
