According to the Aztec myth, when Huitzilopochtli, the god of sun, war, and human sacrifice, was born, he emerged from his mother Coatlicue’s womb ready to fight his siblings. This was because Coatlicue’s daughter, Coyolxauhqui, believed her brother was the product of deception and decided to kill them both with the help of her 400 brothers. Huitzilopochtli was born and attacked his siblings, beheading his sister and throwing her body from a mountaintop. The remains of his brothers (the stars) and Coyolxauhqui (the moon) still shimmer in the night sky.
The Aztecs commemorated the defeat of Coyolxauhqui on a huge stone known as the Great Coyolxauhqui Stone. The Coyolxauhqui Stone is one of the more important pieces on display at the Templo Mayor Museum in the heart of Mexico City.
