Among the latter, Fernando Cortes was easily the greatest, and the story of his life is a chronicle of deeds of heroism and sheep daring, to which history offers few parallels. In the work of overturning the military and religious despotism of Montezuma, some terrible deeds were done.

Similar acts of severity and cruelty, however, blot the fame of great leaders in most wars, ancient and modern.Some of the material used in the following brief story of the conquerors life has already appeared in the biographical note to the Letters of Cortes, the favourable reception of which by students of American history, has encouraged me to prepare the present work in a more popular form.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
