Juana de Asbaje.jpg

Juana de Asbaje.


From Wikipedia:

Sister Juana Inés de la Cruz, O.S.H. (English: Joan Agnes of the Cross) (1651-1695), was a self-taught scholar and poet of the Baroque school, and Hieronymite nun of New Spain, known in her lifetime as "The Tenth Muse." Although she lived in a colonial era when Mexico was part of the Spanish Empire, she is considered today both a Mexican writer and a contributor to the Spanish Golden Age. She stands at the beginning of the history of Mexican literature in the Spanish language. In recognition, she is honored by official government recognition and is an inspiration to artists in the modern era.

Cuauhtemoc.jpg

Cuauhtemoc.


From Britannica.com

Cuauhtémoc (1495-1522) was the 11th and last Aztec emperor, nephew and son-in-law of Montezuma II.

Cuauhtémoc became emperor in 1520 on the death of Montezuma's successor, Cuitláhuac. Hernán Cortés, with powerful Indian allies, was then marching on Tenochtitlán, the Aztec capital. Cuauhtémoc's frontier forces were forced to retreat in 1521, and he defended his capital in a four-month siege that left most of the city destroyed and few Indians surviving. Captured by the Spanish, he was at first treated with deference. Later, Cuauhtémoc was tortured to reveal the location of hidden Aztec wealth. His stoicism and refusal to speak became legendary. Fearing trouble if he left Cuauhtémoc behind, Cortés took the emperor with him to Honduras. En route, hearing of a plot against the Spaniards, he ordered Cuauhtémoc hanged.

In 1949 bones purported to be Cuauhtémoc's were discovered at Ixcateopan, Mexico.
