The Hispanic Monarchy and Nahuatl
As you know, I love Nahuatl. I translate it, teach it, write original work in it.
Here’s something you probably didn’t know: the huge influence that Nahuatl had all over what is now Mexico and Central America is not just due to the expansion of the Triple Alliance (“Aztec Empire”). Nor can it be fully explained by the elevated status of Spain’s Nahuatl-speaking allies, the Tlaxcaltecah, despite how key that indigenous nation was in the establishment of multiple settlements in the northernmost extremes of New Spain.
