Place Where Gods Were Born
The Aztecs found the abandoned city and named it Teotihuacan meaning "The Place Where Gods Were Born". The Aztecs called it this because they thought that that was where the Gods met up after the last world was destroyed and made a new world. 200 years later Fernando Cortes and his men stumbled upon Teotihuacan and the Aztecs. The Spaniards were greatly outnumbered but they won because the Aztecs thought that Quetzalcoatl was supposed to arrive as a bearded man from the sea which they mistook Fernando for.
