MOCTEZUMA
Also known as MONTEZUMA, MOTECUHZOMA

Last king of the Aztec world

He was utterly obsessed by chocolate, which he believed to be the most exquisite substance in the world. He couldn't understand what the Spaniards saw in all that silly gold stuff lying around, and was therefore completely unprepared for the brutal takeover of his entire empire.

Makes you wonder what would've happened if the Aztecs had invaded Spain instead. A brutal chocolate pillage? A country brought to ruin by the lust for cocoa?

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Moctezuma graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Moctezuma movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Moctezuma statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Moctezuma. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
