The Discovery and Conquest of Mexico


 

 << Bernal Diaz del Castillo

 

 

 

 

 


Bernal Diaz del Castillo wrote in Spanish, in the 1560’s, The Discovery and Conquest of Mexico.

 
It was published for the first time in the United States in 1908
.
 

Bernal Castillo was one of the Spanish conquistadors with Hernandez Cortes when Cortes entered the Aztec nation of Montezuma in 1519 A.D.


“This book is one of the main sources for the history of the Conquest.” 
It was… [written] after the Conquest was over, at the time the author, [Bernal Castillo] then nearly sixty, was living in Santiago de Guatemala. 

 It is Bernal Castillo’s personal journal of his first hand knowledge of that historical event. (Introduction to The Discovery and Conquest of Mexico.)
'The Discovery and Conquest of Mexico' or another title to the same translated book is 'The True History of the Conquest of New Spain'.
