Hernan Cortes died in 1547. Hernan Cortes sailed from
Cuba to Mexico.
Hernan Cortes wanted to explore because he wanted to conquer the Aztecs and their wealth along with neighboring tribes, and also wanted to be the governor of Mexico. Cortes first formed a relationship with Montezuma by exchanging messages and gifts. Shortly after meeting for the first time, Cortes took Montezuma as prisoner. After leaving for a while, upon his return Cortes was attacked by the Aztecs and defeated. Cortes was angered at the defeat and surrounded the city in order to keep the Aztecs from getting what they needed to survive. Being starved and weakened by disease Cortes was able to conquer the Aztecs in 1521, claiming the land for Spain.
