Aztec Mythology

The bloodthirsty Gods of Ancient Mexico


Aztec Sacrifice God

Also known as Chalmecateuctli

Underworld God of Sacrifices

A somewhat obscure deity who rules one of the nine levels of the Underworld. We are happy for him to remain obscure if that’s what he wants – you do not argue with Hell Gods of Sacrifice. Particularly not Aztec ones with all those sharp knives lying around.

Chalmecatecuhtli is probably a manifestation of Underworld CEO Mictlantecuhtli. He also features in the Aztec calendar as Lord of Day Eleven (Soul Spirit department). He is helped in his endeavors by a screeching red macaw.
