    A legendary emperor welcomed a contingent of Spanish soldiers led by an ambitious man named Hernán Cortés into his city. Only months later that emperor would be dead, thus beginning the downfall of one of the world's largest empires. But what exactly happened on the day Montezuma II died? Did the Spanish murder him for gain? Or did the Aztec people kill one of their own? It is a question that has stumped historians for nearly 500 years.  Parcast News - Be sure to check out Parcast’s first fictional crime show MIND’S EYE at Parcast.com/MindsEye! Sponsors!
