Hernán Cortés

Original title: Hernán Cortés
Category: Non-Fiction | History
Synopsis:

A biography for the 21st century

Hernán Cortés has been one of history’s most controversial characters, praised and hated in equal parts. He led the expedition that marked the end of the Mexica state and initiated the conquest of Mexico. His next priority was the exploration of the Pacific Ocean and he sought a strait that would facilitate trade between Europe and Asia. Cortés was a success in his day, achieving what all conquistadors had unsuccessfully longed for: honor and fortune for his lineage.

Esteban Mira Caballos, historian specialized in the relations between Spain and America in the 16th century, sheds new light in this necessary biography on the figure of Cortés using a modern methodology and incorporating recent research. He furthermore provides answers to the questions a modern-day reader may have about a figure who has never ceased to be of interest over the past five centuries.

The definitive biography of Hernán Cortés, one of the most praised and simultaneously hated figures of the past five centuries.
