Moctezuma II was the Aztec ruler of the city of Tenochtitlan who increased the power of Tenochtitlan to utterly dominate its sister cities of Texcoco and Tlatelolco. In the spring of 1519, he received the first reports of aliens landing on the east coast of his empire. On November 8, 1519, he met Cortés and on July 1, 1520, he was killed.

His reign was preceded by Auitzotl and followed by Cuitláuac.
