The Aztecs started around 1200 and ended in 1521
The Aztecs were the people who were the ethnics of the central part of Mexico. Basically Aztecs refers to the inhabitants of Tenochtitlan. The Aztecs reached Mexico in 1195. However, Tenochtitlan was founded in 1325 and their rule remained there for a few centuries. In 1521 the Aztec rule ended with the conquest of Mexico by the Spanish.
The Aztecs were a nomadic people from northern Mexico who migrated from our present day southwest. Thier spiritual leaders had a prediction, that they were to settle where they would find an eagle devouring a serpent. It came to pass an eagle was found devouring a serpent on a cactus on a small island on a lake where present day Mexico City lies. They settled the small island and enlarged the island by filling canoas(canoe like boats) with soil and planted them with vegetation mostly crops to feed them. The canoas took root to the lake bottom. The Aztec nation grew. To fulfill thier gods, they became a warring people. Invading peaceful surrounding tribes around the lake. They took prisoners for slaves and many for human sacrifice. That's why when Hernan Cortes came along in 1519. Many tribes offered to help fight the Aztecs, whom they feared and hated.
