Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Tetlepanquetzal (died 1525) was a Mexican king, He was the fourth Tepanec king of Tlacopan, and reigned after 1503 as a tributary of the Mexican emperor Moctezuma II, whom he assisted in the first defence of Mexico. Afterward he was one of the principal auxiliaries of Cuauhtémoc, and when the city was finally taken, 13 August 1521, he was made prisoner and tortured, together with the emperor, by the Spaniards that he might reveal the hiding place of the imperial treasure. When Hernán Cortés marched in 1525 to Honduras to subdue the revolt of Cristobal de Olid, he carried the emperor and three kings with him, and, under the pretext that he had discovered a conspiracy, all four were strangled.
