COYOLXAUHQUIAlso known as COYOLXANUHQUI
Daughter of [COATLICUE], she is Miss Golden Bells the Moon Goddess.She caused a lot of domestic bother after disapproving of her mother's bedroom liaison with a ball of feathers.
But from COATLICUE's pregnant womb sprang new brother HUITZILOPOCHTLI, who was somewhat over-protective of his mum and cut COYOLXAUHQUI's head off. Still, the lad made the best of a bad job and flung her head into the sky, where it became the moon. We don't know who installed the bells.
