  In 1519 there were 5 million Aztecs in Mexico.

Hernan Cortes, the Spanish conquistador, arrived in Mexico in 1519 and by 1521
had conquered the Aztec empire.

By 1522 up to 4 million Aztecs were dead due to war, disease and the genocidal practices of the Spanish invaders.

Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to Juan Diego
in 1531.
