If we consider the Cortes than a conquistador, but just as one of the pioneers of civilization, which had been dead for a man of the XVII century, and for us, and even more so dead, as well as any of those civilizations, which we have already told, there is a legitimate question: any information about this civilization left its contemporaries or their immediate descendants? And now it turns out amazing things; as well as all the other witnesses, Cortes never missed an opportunity to stress once again the strength and power of the people he subjugated, otherwise it would be lost in the eyes of a critical attitude to his contemporaries. However, he never mentioned and halfword that he was not just destroyed the barbaric, pagan power, and actually like decapitated an entire civilization. Nothing he said also that, in fact, this civilization is represented, what was its true value. If it is still possible to explain the spirit of the times and the outlook of the century, who knew the chroniclers, but still did not know the historians, it is quite inexplicable another downright unprecedented fact: the offspring, which came to life at the beginning of the XVI century, not only did not keep in memory the details about the life and culture of the Aztecs, but has forgotten even their very existence. And as the New World more and more drawn into the orbit of political and economic life of Europe (its relationship with Europe was much stronger than, say, Mesopotamia), the fact that in America once existed state with a unique culture, was so firmly forgotten that until recently, science has not paid to the study of the civilizations of the attention that they deserved. Gaps in the field of science is evidenced not only by our own lack of knowledge, but at least the fact that in most encyclopedias and many special works on the general history of the Toltec civilization, the Maya and Aztecs, or does not say, or barely mentioned.
