Chimalpahin's Conquest free pdf This volume presents the story of Hernando Cortes's conquest of Mexico, as recounted by a contemporary Spanish historian and edited by Mexico's premier Nahua historian. Francisco Lopez de Gomara's monumental "Historia de las Indias y Conquista de Mexico" was published in 1552 to instant success. Despite being banned from the Americas by Prince Philip of Spain, "La conquista" fell into the hands of the seventeenth-century Nahua historian Chimalpahin, who took it upon himself to make a copy of the tome. As he copied, Chimalpahin rewrote large sections of "La conquista," adding information about Emperor Moctezuma and other key indigenous people who participated in those first encounters. "Chialpahin's Conquest" is thus not only the first complete modern English translation of Lopez de Gomara's "La conquista," an invaluable source in itself of information about the conquest and native peoples- it also adds Chimalpahin's unique perspective of Nahua culture to what has traditionally been a very Hispanic portrayal of the conquest.
