When Did The Aztec Kingdom Begin

"As a result, when the Mexica arrived in the Valley of Mexico as a semi-nomadic tribe, they found most of the area already occupied.


In roughly 1248,[2] they first settled on Chapultepec, a hill on the west shore of Lake Texcoco, the site of numerous springs." So the Aztec kingdom began in 1248.

How Was Home life In The Aztec Empire

"The Mexican people of the Aztec empire had compulsory education for everyone, regardless of gender or class. In the end, people in the Aztec society were generally well educated, though boys received a wider education than girls.


Girls were taught how to run a home, cook, and care for a family, but they were also taught things like crafts and ways to economically run the home. In this way women had a lot of power in society, though it was behind the scenes." So they were equal to each other.


"The city has many squares where markets are held and trading is carried on. There is one square...where there are daily more than 60,000 souls,buying and selling,and where are found all kinds of merchandise produced in these countries,including food products,jewels of gold and silver,lead,brass,copper,zinc,bones,shells, and feathers."
