If the exploit itself stuns—how a small band of Spanish soldiers arrived in a strange country and swiftly brought about the overthrow of a large and powerful empire—the violence of the act, and the wantonness of the destruction are equally well known."  Resources. - illustrated - From isidore-of-seville.com - http://www.isidore-of-seville.com/cortes/
