Some know that a good man born in ancient Mexico in AD, adopted the name Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl and became confused with the original Quetzalcoatl. Even the Catholic friars who arrived at, or soon after the Spanish conquest of"mixed" the history of these two men.

Indigenous traditions, however, saw a Mexican Messiah who played an important part in constructing the Mexican national identity. This book demonstrates that the story of the returning god is a product of \"fake news\" uttered by Cort\u00E9s. It does so by analysing the most important sources of the Quetzalcoatl-tale.

Much, however, remains wrapped in mystery. All we have to tell us of the legendary Ce Acatl Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl comes from a handful of pre-Columbian sources (perhaps no more than twelve), subsequent Aztec accounts written years later (heavily influenced by Christianity), and the archaeological record (extremely fragmentary).

earlier king than the Mexican Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl, who lived sometime between a.d. and Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl, a Toltec ruler, is the most popular of the culture heroes noted in colonial literature.

Topiltzin Ce Acatl Quetzalcoatl One of the more interesting and important pieces of Aztec myth involves Topiltzin Ce Acatl Quetzalcoatl, a probably-mythical Toltec king. The Aztecs claimed direct descent from the Toltecs (erroneously - migrating Aztec and Chichimec tribes actually destroyed the Toltec empire), whose rule over central Mexico.

’s The Bone Flower Throne, the first book in the Bone Flower Trilogy, is set in the world of Mesoamerican myth, specifically, the story of the great Priest-King Ce Acatl Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl. (In an afterword, the author compares him to King Arthur, which I think is off the mark for reasons I will explain later).

I enjoy works set in or drawing on the Pre-Columbian. In such cases, an aged dissertation needs to be extensively reworked and revisited to fully justify becoming a book. H. B. Nicholson’s Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl is therefore exceptional in two ways.
