Wife of Maize God Cinteotl.
Chalchiuhcihuatl’s the pretty young Goddess of New Corn. Her name could be the new brand name for small coated crispy things. Fancy Chalchiflakes for breakfast?
She’s an attractive young maize lady with ears of corn who can steal the hearts of eligible men. Meanwhile her priests stole not only the hearts, but every other organ. Young girls were sacrificed every September in a most unsavory manner, to ensure the corn harvest was up to scratch. We always preferred toast for breakfast anyway.
In her old age aspect she’s known as Ilamatecuhtli.
