The Aztec people were certain ethnic groups of central Mexico, particularly those groups who spoke the Nahuatl language and who dominated large parts of Mesoamerica from the 14th to 16th centuries. Aztec culture and history are primarily known through archaeological evidence found in excavations such as that of the renowned Templo Mayor in Mexico City. I have often wondered if an Aztec army and a Spartan army met on the field of battle, who would win? It’s not as straight forward or obvious as one might think. Both societies were military societies. The majority would probably answer the following: The Spartans would destroy the Aztecs without a doubt. I guess it really depends on the circumstances. Whose will is stronger, the Spartans who fight for honour or the Aztecs who fight for their gods? A good question.
