CHALCHIUHTLICUE
Also known as CHALCHIHUITLICUE

A picture showing the legend of CHALCHIUHTLICUE taken from our Aztec mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Aztec Gods, Aztec Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Goddess of Youth and Beauty.

Due to circumstances beyond our comprehension, she arose as a fruit-laden prickly pear tree standing in a river. Rivers are her thing, especially when she transforms into River Goddess CHALCHIUHTLICUE.

She prefers flowers to a human sacrifice, but that didn't stop her from flooding the entire world to drown the wicked. The entire Fourth Age of the world was destroyed. Perhaps her tempestuous husband TLALOC talked her into it.
