The Aztecs were an ancient tribe of Mesoamerican origin that existed from the 13th to 16th centuries in what is now Mexico. Their tribe consisted of many different ethnic groups living in the area of Mexico and Guadalajara. The Aztec tribe had very strong religious, social and political systems that influenced the history and culture of Mexico. It was one of the most advanced pre-Columbian civilizations.
The Aztecs had particularly strong women and their society was partially matriarchal. Belief in gods and Buddhism were essential to the Aztec religion. They were ruled by a great dictatorship that was partially sanctioned by the god Tlalocan. Aztec religion consisted of ritual gifts offered to the dead and the gods. The Aztecs had a highly developed education system, in which it was the responsibility of parents to raise their children and teach them good manners and the formulation of truth.
