Cuauhtémoc

Cuauhtémoc (c. 1495 – 28 February 1525) was the Aztec ruler (tlatoani) of Tenochtitlan from 1520 to 1521. The name Cuāuhtemōc means "One That Has Descended Like an Eagle" in Nahuatl, commonly rendered in English as "Swooping Eagle" as in the moment when an eagle folds its wings and plummets down to strike its prey, so this is a name that implies aggressiveness and determination.

Cuauhtémoc was the last native ruler of the Aztecs and their city Tenochtitlan, which the Spanish conquistadors renamed Ciudad de Mexico (Mexico City). He was executed by the Spanish in 1525 and is today considered a hero who fought bravely against the foreign invader and died for his people.
