TRIAL OF HERNÁN CORTÃS

TRIAL OF HERNÁN CORTÃS:After evaluating the murder of Moctezuma II, the following conclusions are deducted. The jury ruled that Hernan Cortes was innocent in the charges of premeditated murder out of jealousy of Aztec Emperor Moctezuma II. Hernan Cortes was innocent because there was the lack of murder. Without hard evidence connecting him and the Spanish army to the murder.

………………………………..middle of paper…………………………….

The prosecutor presented a vague argument and unclear depiction as to how Moctezuma II sustains injuries during the war and ways in which Hernan Cortes could have killed or made an order to kill him. Evidence presented by the defense, it is clear that Aztecs stoned Moctezuma to death. There are uncertainty in the trial and a substantial lack of evidence against Hernan Cortes to connect him or his solder to the killing of Moctezuma II.
