On Wednesday, March 25, 1981, it was announced that the lost treasure of Moctezuma had been discovered. Well, a small part of it, at least.
This legendary treasure has long captivated the imagination. In the 16th century, the conquistador Hernán Cortés arrived in Tenochtitlan (the present-day center of Mexico City) and stayed at the Palace of Axayacatl. There, he and his men discovered a room in which the Aztecs kept their emperors’ treasures.
