The commander of the Spanish forces was Cortez, who was received peaceably by Montezuma. ruler of Mexico. Later, both Cortez and his soldiers behaved with such debauchery and treachery that much warfare ensued under the most savage and merciless conditions.
The principal city in Mexico was Aztec, the tribe of that name being the most powerful in Mexico. Their civilisation was an old one, and t hey had amassed great wealth, most of which was in the hands of the priests.
Much bitter guerilla warfare was carried on in Aztec, prisoners captured on either side being subjected to torture and death.
The play concerns the treatment by the Aztec priests of a Spanish officer taken in the act of violating their most sacred altar.
