CONQUISTADORS: THE RISE AND FALL

The year 1492 marked the start of nearly a century of brutal Spanish conquest of the Americas and the beginning of ‘The Age of the Conquistadors’.

The ruthless and violent acquisition of huge parts of the New World by men like Columbus and Cortés would see the fall of the mighty Aztec and Inca civilisations as well as the deaths of millions of indigenous people through oppression, enslavement and deadly disease.

Popular culture has painted the Conquistadors as brave Christian pioneers, but a shifting narrative has revealed a darker story to their rise and fall. One built on unthinkable atrocities, and fuelled by an insatiable and blinding thirst for gold, power and glory.
