Most Spanish conquistadors, even among favorable of sources, are viewed as complicated individuals motivated by a mixture of greed and religious fervor. However, there is one conquistador who is almost universally hated and maligned. That man is Pedro de Alvarado. This presentation follows the brutal conquistador from his initial forays in Cuba, to his massacre of festival goers in Tenochtitlan, through his campaigns against the Maya, and ending with his death at the hands of rebellious Caxcanes.Most Spanish conquistadors, even among favorable of sources, are viewed as complicated individuals motivated by a mixture of greed and religious fervor.
